Glamcult releases ‘The Pain Issue’

Featuring Cardi B, Palomo Spain, Porches, Dream Wife and many more.


How does it hurt? Glamcult’s spring 2018 issue deals with all possible forms of pain, from existential angst and internalized shame to physical distress. Much more than gore or fetish, it’s a sincere—but most of all, a hopeful—exploration of human heartbreak and discomfort.

‘The Pain Issue’ features, among others, hip-hop’s woman of the moment, Cardi B, indie popstar Porches, the fashion provocateurs of Palomo Spain, feminist punk outfit Dream Wife, young writers Wilson Oryema and Tilly Lawless, and rising Dutch artist Rutger de Vries.
