First Person - # 3 – Realness
Fall 2009. Despite the recession, there’s always room for a few more independent voices. Firstperson is a platform for (contemporary) eccentrics at the top of their game. In this issue (aptly named “Realness”) word and image is devoted to simple pleasures: travelling to distant lands, taking your shirts off, and the cheap thrill of comedic films… Sounds shallow? Think again, this is for the Art Insider. This issue features a travel diary by Sublime Frequencies (observations on Syria and Dabke), art work by Wolgang Tillmans, Katja Rahlwes, Hedi Slimane (a.o.), a profile on Hitoshi Matsumoto and an interview with Steven Shearer. Quote: “I’m interested in utopian structures that inspire teenagers to urinate on them”.
