Caleb Kwarteng Prah, Dazed Autumn 2023 ‘Beyond Borders’ issue (interview)


Out today (September 14), the autumn 2023 ‘Beyond Borders’ issue of Dazed goes in search of the people breaking new creative ground in every corner of the world in 2023.

Inside, we salute the second coming of Afrobeats’ most playful star, Amaarae: author Jamal Jordan reflects on the brutal, beautiful filmmaking of Kokomo City, a tragicomic account of four trans sex workers holding firm in NYC and Atlanta; painter and photographer, Caleb Kwarteng Prah, swaps dukes for cab drivers in his Afrocentric artworks; Gen-Z agony aunt Madeline Argy talks relationship soft-launches and hot-girl summers in a story lensed by Ewen Spencer; we meet the Haitian designers pushing back against pèpè, an accidental style that shines a harsh light on our disposable-garms addiction.
