Ladies Night

The gender disparity of DJ culture is nothing new. What is new is that consistently more and more women are joining the ranks of the top elite DJs. Enter Liaison Femme, a creative collective compromised exclusively of female DJs such as Venus X, Mia Moretti, Sam Ronson, Creep, Gina Turner, Louisahhh, DJ Kiss, Jasmine Solano, [...]

Summer Mixtape No.1

It features diverse genre-benders such as Hannah Hunt (Christopher Owens), Kilo Kish, MAS YSA, Smash Simmons, Elvis Perkins/Cornelia Livingston and others.

Maryam Nassir Zadeh In Conversation

Skye Parrott: Can you tell me a little about your background? How did you grow up, what were your parents like? Maryam Nassir Zadeh: My parents grew up in London and met in the ’60s; they fell in love in their early twenties while on a blind date. They wanted to raise a family of [...]

Work it Out

This is Brooklyn-based band Workout‘s newest video from their album Life is a Nightmare. Directed by Dossier contributor Josh Slater, the video sees the band on a cosmic journey from the beginning of time to the end of days. I particularly love the NASA footage from the 80′s.

Marie-Louise Mogensen In Conversation

A mutual friend suggested I meet Marie-Louise Mogensen when she was in New York last year. She showed up for our lunch at Reynaud’s toting a big bag of clothes from her Baserange, all of which she insisted I keep. They were mostly the wrong size, because our friend had told her I was much [...]

Everybody Loves Urs

In the art world, the site of construction is commonly a guarded one, kept far from the immaculacy of the site of presentation. This custom does not entirely hold true in the retrospective of Urs Fischer held at Los Angeles’s Museum of Contemporary Art, MOCA. This dichotomy in fact is prevalent in the site both [...]

Mr. Clean

This was published last year but I was re-reading it again today and it just made me laugh so hard. Especially because I have been known to listen to pop music in my kitchen at times. I also just love the line about spoons. What is that even about? Anyway, in case you missed it, [...]

Throwing Stones

For the Venice Biennale, actress Milla Jojovich teamed up with the artist Tara Subkoff to create a performance piece based around our ideas of capitalism and extreme consumer culture. For six hours each day Milla lived in a glass house outfitted with only a computer, tablet and a smartphone. During the piece she communicated with [...]
