Steel Blossom, January 2003
The Steel Blossom issue, January 2003 from TANK Magazine.
This issue of TANK crashed into the real in all its complicated, unsatisfactory necessity. Inspired by Guy Bourdin’s Situationist philosophy, we tracked the spectacular moments where the artifice of glamour is forced to reckon with the realities of the material world. Pankaj Mishra conducts an autopsy on Western Modernity Rem Koolhaas on the pan-European industrial landscape he dubs “HOLLOCORE” and Duncan McLaren makes the case for an artists’ strike.
