This magazine is a tricky one to describe. Sleek magazine is packed with so many different types of articles and features it’s hard to pin point exactly what it is all about. It’s a mix between a cultural magazine and a fashion magazine with a little lifestyle material thrown in for good measure. This is the perfect read for those who like to be kept up to date with the fast paced world of contemporary art and design and the latest fashion trends.
It is also ideal for readers who like to be pushed intellectually and enjoy pondering controversial topics and ideas. The magazine will have strange and interesting features such as one article called ‘auto erotic’ which discussed why we love to look at car accidents despite the fact they are awful things. It likes to contain interesting features which try to break taboos and bring difficult issues to the forefront of people’s minds.
One particular feature we saw in one issue of Sleek stayed in our minds for some time. It was an article which discussed the work of Nan Goldin who famously took hundreds of photographs of people with HIV and AIDS. Her aim we are told was to show ‘how the actual aesthetics of the disease is changing’. It’s all pretty deep stuff and be warned it can made you feel uncomfortable sometimes and it can contain shocking images. Sleek is for readers who enjoy reading controversial material which will shock and amaze them in equal measure.
