Krass Issue 01
KRASS Journal is a bi-annual arts and culture journal, based in Australia, international in scope. It is a poetic and eclectic ode to print - deliberately advertisement-free and tactile. Eschewing the traditional fashion magazine form, KRASS infuses art with politics, poetry with activism. With the tag line independent, ambitious, gracefully impolite, KRASS publishes diverse opinions and thoughts. Issue 1 features conversations with the diverse likes of provoceteur and photographer Henrik Purienne and Australia’s leading human rights lawyer, Julian Burnside QC. Artist and activist Molly Crabapple talks about her experience in Guantanamo Bay whilst India Salvor Menuez says that “the sacredness of art is kind of a joke”. KRASS interviews and feature work by radical Beijing photographer Ren Hang, avant-garde film maker Amiel Courtin-Wilson, artist Ana Kraš, a Catalan bank robber and the enigmatic model-cum-activist Ollie Henderson, to name a few. KRASS is an ode to the defiant and the curious.
