Peel Away the Outer Shell
29 November 2011
Vinz Hölzl began his career very young. In 2007, at the age of seventeen, he and Kathi Schwaiger founded the pop-culture fanzine HUSK. It began as both a medium to express themselves and to document their surroundings. But the magazine soon grew to become a high-fashion must-have by both focusing on art and fashion and with critical and radical thinking. “Radical thinking and not caring what the establishment thinks is avant-garde," Vinz says. Here he introduces The Avant/Garde Diaries to the concept of the Cultural Flat Rate, the notion that laws have to be adapted to fit the dynamics of content distribution of the online world. The digital revolution has changed things; everything is now available somewhere. The idea of the Cultural Flat Rate, as Vinz explains, is a contemporary approach to dealing with the constant development of the Internet and the information that is available through it.
