In Mastermind 4 we meet Kristen Stewart, Arianna Huffington, Dieter Rams, Samara Weaving, Raphael Enthoven, Beate Klarsfeld, Gilles Jacob, and Ariana Rockefeller. Further: Karl Lagerfeld and author Leila Slimani speak about their shared interest for literature. Edmund White recounts his memories of New York. We also speak with three women in Ingmar Bergman’s life. And Juliette Binoche shares her diaries with us.
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.
