Welcome to the Metamorphosis issue
SLEEK is an independent online and quarterly printed art and culture magazine, featuring interviews, short fiction, commissioned photography, opinion pieces, fashion editorials, photo essays and more.
#SLEEK66 deals with the deluge of change to our foundations — personal, societal and symbolic — that have occurred in the immediate aftermath of a global pandemic. Honest but centred with optimism, the issue spotlights creatives of all typologies including Jina Khayyer, Burhan Qurbani, Elfie Semotan, Marcel Dettmann, Anselm Kiefer, Refik Anadol, Jackson Bowley and Stefanie Giesinger.
The cover features mother and daughter Lisa Elde and Djenaba Elysium shot by Felicity Ingram in full Prada looks styled by Lorena Maza for a visual that champions unity in times of individual seclusion.
All proceeds from #SLEEK66 will be donated to GLADT e.V. — a Berlin-based black and queer PoC organisation working to address the overlaps of racism, sexism, trans*- and homophobia, and ableism. We encourage anyone in a position to do so to follow suit.
SLEEK is distributed globally on newsstands and has an international reputation for its forward thinking content which feeds into a wider cultural conversation.
