Aesthetica - Issue 95
Aesthetica Magazine is a worldwide destination for art and culture. In-depth features foreground today’s most innovative practitioners across art, design, photography, architecture, music and film.
This issue is entitled Recalibration. It’s about realignment and hope. As humans, we need to understand our place in the world and the fragility of this ecosystem. A major retrospective of Lina Bo Bardi was due to take place in Chicago, so we survey the importance of this, looking at Bo Bardi’s philosophy on architecture and rebuilding. As cities and urban spaces need to change, her oeuvre teaches us about how we must always interrogate the present in order to preserve the future. Meanwhile, South African photographer Athi-Patra Ruga asks us to decolonise the art world and deconstruct power structures. The work is simply arresting; it is calling for an end to the pageantry of nationalism and its rhetoric.
