Sleek magazine for art and fashion, focuses on art and fashion, an independent quarterly. Focusing on a curated investigation of contemporary art and fashion. Published in Berlin and distributed internationally, Sleek is printed in English. Each issue contains a mono thematic dossier centred on a topic comprising two opposite concepts and selected as a playful approach to tackling the intricacy of contemporaneous culture.

Considering the visual as the most important language of our times, and art and fashion as its most influential disciplines, sleek provides a platform for both while seeking to highlight their aesthetic and intellectual interrelatedness.
