Steiner, Swedish filmmakers Ester Martin Bergsmark and Eli Levén talk to Tomas Hemstad about She Male Snails, Helen de Witt meets the irrepressible provocateur Charles Lum, and Ronald Grant and Martin Humphries, the couple behind London's Cinema Museum, sip tea and chat with Brian Robinson. Author and activist Sarah Schulman selects her Video Library, Ron Gregg examines Barbara Rubin’s role in the New York Underground, Jon Davies expresses his adoration for Miss Edmonton Teen Burger 1983, Marc Siegel provides us with a humorous discussion of the work of R. W. Fassbinder and Liz Rosenfeld gives a personal account of queer filmmaking in modern Berlin.

"...for Single Mothers"
This journal investigates the idea of a project in architecture—that is, the pursuit of an intellectual problem or critical agenda that transcends an architect’s individual works. Given the present diffuseness of the discipline, and the proliferation of media platforms that indiscriminately celebrate the imagery and culture of design, it is essential to distinguish the architects, ideas and works that take a critical stance on architecture and the world in which it exists. Project is a platform for architects to name the stakes for architecture, to articulate in drawings and words their projects and their ambitions for the discipline today. We aim to continually broaden the diversity of our contributors and to provide young architects with the opportunity to set their ideas down in print, with all of the seriousness that print—which is slow, expensive, and lasting—demands.
