Outer Limits: Björk and BernHard Willhelm
Dazed travels to the furthest reaches of Earth to talk all-girl brass bands and kaleidoscopic explosions of colour with the two agent provocateurs behind one of 2007's most far-out collaborations.

Sympathy For The Devil: Kenneth Anger
Self-professed Satanist Kenneth Anger talks movies, magick and madness, as Dazed charts a chequered celluloid history that features cameos from the likes of Marianne Faithfull, Mick Jagger and Jimmy Page.

Call of The Wild: Rita Ackermann
New York artist Rita Ackermann talks to Dazed about remaining a true original, and being an inspiration to countless young creatives, on the eve of her first British solo exhibition.

Stay Gold: Foals
We head downtown to bring you the inside track on dance-rock quintet Foals, who spent the summer in New York recording their hotly anticipated debut album with legendary Brooklyn producer Dave Sitek.

The Back

Cult VIP: Robert Massin
A pioneer of the printed aesthetic, a founding father of graphic art and maverick contemporary of Jean Cocteau looks back on a life full of radical ideas, printing on condoms and groundbreaking design ideas.

Q&A: Matthew Barney
Barney creates art that is shocking, provocative and awe-inspiring in equal measure. The man behind Cremaster Cycle talks exclusively to Dazed about pushing himself to physical extremes, jelly sculptures and his new film project.

Art: Hung & Drawn
New York artist Diann Bauer talks art and violence; new London zine Paperback makes the case for Rauschenberg; and US artist Charlie Roberts turns his canvas into a psychological museum.

Books: Bound & Flogged
Douglas Coupland gets to grips with the daily grind; Chris Killen uncovers the psychological severity of supermarket boredom; and retired nihilist Graham Bendel releases two books deep-fried in hedonistic excess.

Film: Cut & Wrapped
Romanian director Corneliu Porumboiu investigates the malleability of memory; Radar’s upcoming video directors get ready for maximum exposure; and the Cuban Revolution is explored in the reissue of the lost classic Soy Cuba.

Music: Agony & Ecstasy
French label Record Breakers take the Parisian club scene to a whole new level with signings Turzi and Sebastien Tellier; The Hood Internet bring the mash-up up to date; Florence And The Machine talk Catholic guilt; and Late Of The Pier frontman Samuel Dust emerges as a priest in LA.
