issue 4 of Dirty Furniture explores the closet’s trajectory from “a place of seclusion to one of opulent display”. It does so through a number of intelligent essays which speak for themselves with little editorial. There are sprawling essays that reference Le Corbusier, Judith Butler and Michel Foucault to Cabinet‘s editor Brian Dillon who writes a fascinating piece on time capsules. There are also looks at incarceration and prison design, clutter, fast fashion, tracksuits, home storage and much more in what is an ambitious and intriguing edition.
