mono.kultur is an interview magazine from Berlin. The current edition is dedicated to the Norwegian scent researcher Sissel Tolaas â€“ a â€˜professional provocateurâ€™ as she describes herself. She has established a huge archive in Berlin with approximately 7,000 smells. What makes the magazine so special is that it includes 12 pages that you can rub and smell. With a special technique called microencapsulation the scents are literally printed into the magazine. I find this idea very interesting, but to be honest I cannot bear to read the magazine because the smells are not very pleasant at all… This magazine stinks… Or to use the words of Sissel Tolaas, â€œSmell provokes. And if it can provoke, then there is hope.â€œ I have to go and wash my hands right now and I hope to get this smell out of my nose again. ‘Agent Provocateur’ Sissel Tolaas has accomplished her mission.
