ZOO Magazine 75 – Anniversary Issue
ZOO Magazine 75 – Anniversary Issue | This coming issue of ZOO Magazine marks a special occasion, an anniversary celebrated through the very special Anniversary Issue #75!
ZOO Magazine was born in 2003. The name ZOO is a direct reference to Christiane F.’s novel “Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo” [Zoo Station: The Story of Christiane F.] and therefore also the city of Berlin in which the magazine was originally founded. The connection to the city of Berlin has withstood the times, the city remains a constant source of inspiration. The iconic logo, a representation of the Brandenburg Gate, especially created for Sandor Lubbe, Editor in Chief of ZOO and former founder of Dutch Magazine, by the late artist Swip Stolk, a dear friend of the publication, was meant to reflect the special bond to the city and its special atmosphere and people.
The whole team behind ZOO Magazine is very happy and grateful to be able to celebrate such a milestone, and we are very thankful to all the people who have helped to make this possible throughout the year!
With the Anniversary Issue #75, ZOO Magazine wants to pay homage to its roots in Berlin and the broader German-speaking region and all the numerous, inspiring creatives who call them home or have a special link to them, just as ZOO Magazine does. Creativity knows no age, and age is just a number. With this in mind, this issue features a great mix of up-and-coming as well as established talents from various creative disciplines ranging from art and music to fashion, cinema, and architecture.
In this issue, ZOO had the pleasure to feature artist-duo Elmgreen & Dragset, the two Scandinavians who now live and work in Berlin. We had an opportunity to meet them at the opening of their newest exhibition Useless Bodies? at the Fondazione Prada, Milan. In their conversation with ZOO, both talk about the inspiration behind the exhibition as well as offering insights into their practice. Another famous pair of artists featured in this issue are Jakob Lena Knebl and Ashley Hans Scheirl. The two artists are Austria’s representatives at the Venice Biennale during which they present Invitation of the Soft Machine and Her Angry Body Parts, transforming the Austrian pavilion into an open stage that invites the audience to explore the spaces of desire through their unique oeuvre centered around the body, ever-changing identities and desires. Additionally, ZOO also met with upcoming German artist Paul Schrader, who is currently preparing for the Volta Art Fair in New York. Instead of shipping his art from Germany, Schrader decided to book a studio in New York to create his works on location. In his interview with ZOO, Schrader talks about his passion for painting, and how he hopes to transmit his feelings and thoughts to the onlooker through his works.
