Kaleidoscope, released twice a year, is a meeting place for a global community of creative minds, drawn by an audacious art direction and ever-surprising contributions from visionary artists, writers and image-makers. Believing that artists are the real truth-tellers and agents of change, our work puts their vision and creativity front and center - a constant reminder about the importance of pushing boundaries and breaking new ground.
Kaleidoscope #36 / Spring-Summer 2020, cover: Eli Russel Linnetz / Shports.
A profile by Jeppe Ugelvig introduces Venice Beach native Eli Russel Linnetz, creative director for the Kardashian-West clan and Lady Gaga, and his powerful meditation on fame, glamour, and mythology. Inaugurating a new text-only editorial segment dedicated to urgent research questions of our time, “What is Influence?” presents four newly-commisioned long-form essays discussing influence as legacy, currency and agency - all the while examining art’s own influence on society, and viceversa.
