Claiming inspiration from the likes of Theodor Adorno, Rem Koolhaas and David Lynch, Aesthetic Theories uses big ideas as a starting point for exploring creativity and cool. 

Based in Los Angeles, it tours Tokyo, London, Berlin, Melbourne and beyond to report on art, photography, philosophy, fashion and design. In this issue editor-in-chief Samine Joudat uses his opening statement to take aim at “a need for commodification that forces everything to become the same”, and the rest of the magazine explores that brief, showcasing distinctive, easily consumed highlights from the world’s creative capitals.
