In Mastermind 11, the remarkable Penélope Cruz invites us to Madrid for a wide-ranging conversation about her life and work, bringing the same fiery honesty to the page as she does to the screen.
Also inside, actress Ruth Negga discusses her nomadic nature and mesmerizing performances, astronaut Thomas Pesquet speaks candidly about the fears he experiences at work in outer space, and artist Ai Weiwei reflects on how his pursuit of free expression has made him an enemy of the state.
Plus photography by Craig McDean, Ethan James Green, Carlijn Jacobs, Tod Papageorge, Thue Norgaard, Julien Martinez Leclerc and more.
Not quite a magazine, nor exactly a book, Mastermind is rather a hybrid object; a polyphonic work marching to the beat of ten chapters focused on questions, creators and places in whose voices we heard an eternal urgency, brimming with unexpected possibilities. It is a kind of magazine with its own unique look & feel crafted by Marie-Amélie Sauvé. “Mastermind is setting our times to words and images.”
The present of Mastermind is a time designed to last, made to be stopped, explored and revisited. Like a collection of short stories or a beloved record we leave to one side, only to come back to it, time and again. A global publication that is produced in English and distributed worldwide by Bruil & van de Staaij.
