“Kilimanjaro is something to be seen with” — Vogue
One of Esquire’s “50 Most Influential Things In The Media”, Kilimanjaro Magazine is a vibrant printed space, dedicated to visual culture and editorial experimentation. Its carefully-curated mixture of high aesthetics and respected contributors make it unlike any other independent publication in the world; within Kilimanjaro, art, style and culture are brought together in the medium of avant-garde printed matter, ideas are presented in a unique visual language, and the expected forms of magazine publishing are disregarded, in favour of a new and innovative style.
The winner of D&AD’s “Outstanding Achievement In Photography And Magazine — New Print” in 2006, Kilimanjaro is designed to appeal to a consumer whose desire for refined aesthetics is twinned with a passion for ‘art, love, and everyday life’.
Featured contributors, writers and collaborators, both past and present, come from the worlds of art, fashion, culture, architecture, design and photography, and include:
- Hans Ulrich Obrist — Once named the most powerful man in art by Art Review, Hans Ulrich Obrist is the director of the Serpentine Gallery, as well as being a prolific and extremely nuanced art critic.
- Martin Creed — After winning the Turner Prize in 2001, Martin Creed has gone on to become part of the modern art establishment in Britain; his minimal, conceptual sculptures have consistently generated controversy and interest in equal measure.
- Marina Ambramovic — Serbian-born NY-based performance artist Marina Abramovic is the self-titled “Grandmother of performance art”, and has been producing work since the 1970s. She has been presented with a number of awards over her three-decade career, including the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale in 1997.
- Bruce Sterling — Bruce Sterling is an American science fiction author, whose work has helped to define the cyberpunk genre. As well as being a seminal author, Sterling is also an artist, journalist and speaker, and to date, has won a total of five high-profile awards for his writing, including two Hugos, one of the highest honours which can be bestowed on a science-fiction author.
- Sarah Lucas — British artist Sarah Lucas emerged as part of the YBA movement, and has since gone on to find fame and international acclaim in her own right through her smart, bawdy and sexualized artworks. She has appeared in a number of highly-acclaimed shows, including the 50th Venice Biennale, and received a retrospective at Tate Liverpool in 2006.
- Philippe Starck — A near-household name in the world of design, Philippe Starck is perhaps most famous for his beautiful and ultra-sophisticated furniture and interiors, although his work extends far beyond this realm, and into everything from toothbrushes to motorcycles to property development. In addition to being an internationally-recognised designer, and the most famous proponent of the New Design movement, Starcke is also a passionate campaigner for the use of sustainable energy.
- Hauser and Wirth — Based in London, Zurich and New York, Hauser and Wirth is one of the most important contemporary galleries in the world. It represents over 40 artists, both emerging and established – including Roni Horn, Louise Bourgeoise and Paul McCarthy – as well as the estates of several high-profile individuals, including Jason Rhoades and Dieter Roth.
Kilimanjaro’s fashion editorial also features a select mix of high-end brands, both elegant and avant-garde, including Chloe, Stella McCartney, Raf Simons, Jil Sander, Alexander McQueen and Yohji Yamamoto, and the magazine has also worked closely with Yves Saint Laurent on exclusive and bespoke material.
