The Maxico! Issue. Spring 2015


This issue of Tank is dedicated to Mexico. Composed when a flurry of euphoria accompanied the nation’s booming economy, the issue captures a city defined by a bold energy, but also struggle.


From flash fiction by the award-winning author and professor, Christina Rivera Garza, through to the novelist Álvaro Enrigue’s exploration of the many layers of Mexico City, the issue chimes with voices direct from the nation. Juan Carlos Cano catalogues Mexico’s singular architectural tradition, while Sergio Gonzalez Rodriguez and Tony Wood look beyond the foundations to navigate Mexico’s complex political landscape. Also featured are interviews with Raf Simons and the superstars behind Opening Ceremony and Kenzo.
