"The first Purple Index lists 76 of the most creative people in art and fashion - in alphabetical order to avoid any kind of hierarchy. Each was photographed or portrayed through their work. Of course, this number is arbitrary. (...) All these artists are highly innovative and influential, not only in what they do, but also in how they do it: methodically, ironically, obsessively, or intuitively, and always with style. We interviewed them to understand how they innovate, express themselves, and move forward in a period when creativity is everywhere and relevance is rare." - Oliver Zahm. Featuring among others Maurizio Cattelan, Demna Gvasalia, Anne Imhof, Rei Kawakubo, Kiko Mizuhara, Shayne Oliver, Miuccia Prada, Juergen Teller, and Amanda Wall. Purple Index 76 also includes Jean -Luc Nancy, Éric Troncy, Slavoj Zizek, Xavier Veilhan, Francesco Vezzoli and Urs Fischer among others. Published by Purple Institute (Paris).
