New periodicals: Aperture #212 and Scapegoat #4

The newest issue of Aperture, America`s most interesting photography magazine, is themed around "Playtime" and features interviews with Erwin Wurm, Sophie Calle, and Christian Marclay, an essay on Jacques Tati`s Playtime by David Campany, Brian Droitcour on video games and Google Street View, a portfolio of contemporary Swiss photography, and contributions from Abbas Kiarostami, Mike Mills, and many others. What more could you ask?? Seriously, this magazine is amazing.

We also have the newest volume of the dense but satisfying Scapegoat, a bi-annual journal of "Architecture, Landscape, and Political Economy". The last issue was on newsprint, but the publishers have dramatically stepped up their game with the thick and glossy perfect-bound printing of Scapegoat #4: it feels like a proper book, of the sort that Semiotext(e) might put out. This issue is themed around "Currency" and features a selection of scholars, artists, designers and architects on topics such as: "Why the Euro Crisis Matters to Us All", "Money as Anticapitalist Praxis", and "Vulnerable Accumulation: A Practical Guide".
