BERLIN — The forthcoming German edition of Interview magazine has named Jörg Koch its editor in chief.
Koch has worked for the Süddeutsch Zeitung, Die Zeit and i-D magazine. He is also the founder of edgy English-language title 032c, and he is to retain his position there as editor in chief and creative director.
The first issue is slated to appear at the end of January 2012.
German Interview’s art director will be Koch’s 032c colleague Mike Meiré, who is also art director of Garage. Also on board in Berlin as the magazine’s fashion director is Klaus Stockhausen, previously fashion director of GQ Germany.
As previously reported, Adriano Sack and Jörg Harlan Rohleder will serve as joint executive editors.
The team takes over from previously named editor in chief Aliona Doletskya, who remains international editor of Interview and editor in chief of Russian Interview. Fashion director Jo-Ann Furniss and art director Tim McIntyre were initially slated to do double duty on both German and Russian Interview editions, and are now out at both.
The first issue of Russian Interview is to make its debut on Nov. 25.
