Are you Interrupt’s Next Editor-in-Chief?

Interrupt Magazine is a non-hierarchical fashion magazine. We use fashion as a universal entry point to conversations and actions that dismantle oppressive mainstream constructions of gender, sex, race, power, and beauty. Each issue, we have a new editor-in-chief.

 Our goal is to co-create content that provokes change, inspires action, and builds a portfolio for the important change-makers in our generation. You can read our manifesto here.

 Are you the next editor of Interrupt?

The Process: We spend a month working closely with a creative who is sustainably engaged in the issue they wish to ‘interrupt’ - acting as their personal creative agency.

What does this look like? Each editor produces four pieces of intriguing, engaging, and original content with the Interrupt team - see the latest issue here. We help you conceptualize, communicate and execute your ideas to bring your cause/perspective/mission/aesthetic to it’s fullest potential; reaching as many viewers as possible. 

We interrupt mainstream media through physical interruptions, like this hashtag and wheatpasting campaign we did last week, viral videos like this one, popular photo series like this one, events, gallery shows, and more.

Oh, and we provide you with all the resources of a magazine! Think: the office space, the illustrators, the graphic designers, the photographers, and the filmmakers, plus a $500 stipend.

Here are a few ideas we are interested in Interrupting this season (we’re always up for new interpretations, crazy ideas, fresh perspectives - so, don’t stop here):

We like to work with editors who have cultivated communities around their work, bring a nuanced perspective to their issue, are passionate about storytelling, and excited to collaborate with our team. We love investing in first time content creators so don’t feel intimidated if you’ve never been published!

So, are you in? Fill out the application here by September 29th so we can get to work!

Interrupt is published by Space-Made, a Brooklyn based creative agency that works to resource and brand artists and activists working within the margins.

designer spotlight: Esra Canoğulları @8ulentina is a talented multimedia artist who’s work includes wearable art from the future. “I make garments that are recognizable in form but abstracted in use. I use non traditional materials and surface treatments to achieve minimal compositions that can be reconfigured on the body. All of my pieces are gender non specific and are activated through the wearer’s personalization and experimentation with the piece.”

"It was mostly my fascination with technology that inspired me to do this photo shoot. Even though interacting with everyday devices can seem banal, it’s also beautiful. Throughout all of my photo work, I make a point of illustrating my personal style, which I call &#8220;diaspora looks&#8221; — it&#8217;s a mixture between East and the West, inspired by the aesthetics of diaspora communities living in the Western world. Technology plays an interesting part in that, and helps represent cross-cultural identity as pan-national, which makes this series look like it could have been shot anywhere — in South Asia, or the Middle East, or even Brooklyn.&#8221; - lordeinc

Bande de Filles / Girlhood (2014) dir. Céline Sciamma starring Karidja Toure, Assa Sylla, Lindsay Karamoh, Marietou Toure

A few weeks ago I watched 17 Filles, a film directed by Muriel Coulin based on the myth surrounding the “Gloucester 18”, a group of girls from the same US high school who got pregnant within the same year. A TIME reporter claimed that the girls had made a pact to get pregnant at the same time, maybe as a form of rebellion. Although that was later debunked, the film - set in France - is based on the fiction.

The only glimpse of a black girl in Coulin’s film is during a wide establishing shot in the playground of the school the girls attend. The girl is being (playfully?) kicked in the butt by a white girl. Since it’s an establishing shot, we’re not really meant to care what’s happening in the scene, it’s just a way of letting us know that the characters who matter have decided to go to school that day. 

This is basically standard practice in the (bougie) French films I regularly subject myself to (Claire Denis is the obvious exception), and that’s one  reason I wanna see Sciamma’s new film Girlhood. The film is getting good reviews (this one especially although I don’t read French so there are definitely more) and Sciamma also seems aware of how messed up that absence is: “It was part of the thrill of making the movie, and the will to make the movie, because [black girls] are invisible on the screen”  

"This country doesn’t give them a vision of what they could be, what they could do. Still, they are so strong and intelligent and it’s an incredible youth in France that we have."

&

"I wanted the movie to avoid the cliches of a suburban movie, you know, documentary-like with the camera on the shoulder. I wanted it to be wide and stylish. And so we decided to shoot the movie in cinemascope. Also so that we could shoot the four girls all in the same frame. And to shoot suburbia in a charismatic way."

&

"They’re not gangs in the US sense of the word; just big groups of friends… They face a particular set of challenges but at the same their stories are consistent with the themes I’ve explored in my other work such as the construction of feminine identity and friendships between girls… the film is basically a coming-of-age tale.
