HAMAM is a new quarterly bathing magazine.
We started HAMAM because there isn’t a magazine already out there that cares this much about a good soak.
The magazine feature essays, artist projects, photography, and interviews from contributors from all over the world. We think of bathing as one of the practices of letting go. We will explore many of these practices, but there’s no denying: we’re bathing obsessed.
The theme of Hamam 4 is Naked - not in the obvious sense for a bathing periodical, but as a commentary on the natural, unaltered state of things. Being naked isn’t about exposing your body. It’s about being visible, vulnerable, and ready to let go. Featuring these very wet contributors:
Artwork by Mary Herbert, Em Kettner, Yelizaveta Strakhova, and Luis Estrada
Photography by Laura Pannack and Guy Wenborne
Writing by Mika Meskanen, Rachel Walther, Lara Ögel, and Meher Varma
Conversations with Carolina Caldeira, Barry Sykes, Yvonne Billimore, and César Debargue
We also welcome back our regulars Şebnem Şoher and Mikkel Aaland.
