A fluid design paired with a rigid structure of one interview per issue forms the spine of independent magazine mono.kultur. Since their launch in 2005, the unique format has continued to blossom featuring one exciting artist per edition. Their latest offering for issue 43 includes an extensive look into the work and life of Fatima Al Qadiri, a Kuwaiti musician and visual artist exploring gender fluidity and the merging of eastern and western influences. Fatima serves an insightful magazine-length interview and gives us an exclusive view into her teenage photographic diary of 1997: starring her sister Monira dressing in her father’s clothes. We caught up with Kai von Rabenau, art director, photographer and founder of mono.kultur to discuss the reasons behind the publication and how they came to choose their latest muse.
