Acne Paper #9 / Out Now!

Enlightenment, spirituality, transcendence and paradise - these themes have inspired man since the dawn of civilization. Mysterious ideas have been cultivated as religious and alternative belief systems around the world for longer than most of us care to think about. We are, however, reminded about these energies when entering holy places created by great craftsmen and artists. Even the most sceptical atheist, when gazing at these icons, paintings and sculptures, feels that there is something godlike about them.

Art, as we know it, has its history in these rooms and that is why we have chosen spirituality as a theme for our first issue dedicated to art. In the history of civilization, how has art addressed the idea of spirituality and the immaterial world? These and many more questions are discussed in Acne Paper No.9

The cover story sees a unique collaboration between Tilda Swinton and Paolo Roversi. Interviews include David Lynch, Marina Abramovic, Alejandro Jodorowsky and AA Bronson. An extensive art portfolio is curated by Lisa Rovner and Neville Wakefield. Gallerist Maureen Paley makes a special homage to Edvard Munch, while renowned art critic Waldemar Januszczak discusses the lost secrets of the Sistine Chapel in Rome.
