Issue 6 takes inspiration from Jean-Luc Godard’s formula, ‘the identity between love and work.’ Couples are design projects, with narrativity, predestination and failure built into their wiring. Guests are asked to present Couple Formats that have mattered to them: in the way specific roles were delineated; in the way the products of the couple rendered the relationship; or in the way that the relationship itself became a kind of work or product itself.
