Word Up. May 2003


Product Description

In times of crisis, discussion seems futile and words lose their meaning. How many words have been banned or forgotten? And how many of those have now slipped away forever? We know TANK is always full of gorgeous imagery, but for this issue we implored our readers to focus on the words.

  • John Berger on the trappings of consumerist ideology

  • Rem Koolhaas and Galahad Clark’s infinite footwear

  • Riccardo Orizio on the cruel theatrics of Idi Amin’s dictatorship

  • Plus, Robert Astley-Sparke spins round and round, Meenakshi Ganguly reports on the Tamil tigers and Matteo Bertolio reinvents the pop art cliches
