We have titled this summer issue DISPLACEMENT. In thinking about all the declinations the word can have with respect to a humanity increasingly in crisis, more than any other we have highlighted the disconnection from our corporeality as human beings and a widening gaze, from the bios (human) toward new zoo/geo/technological subjectivities, that has set in motion other categories of actors and complex networks of affective relations.
The cover stories in this issue are dedicated to Tishan Hsu and Louisa Gagliardi. Both worldviews present a restlessness: Gagliardi’s resulting from a sense of dissatisfaction or unhappiness, and Hsu’s from an attempt to read “what is happening internally in this new interface we increasingly inhabit, between the body and technology.”
Throughout the issue, we offer a neo-materialist view of life that rejects any form of undifferentiated and flat ontology, choosing to relocate anthropomorphic subjects by subtracting them from any pretense toward exceptionality.
Also in this issue: Marguerite Humeau by Adriana Blidaru; Raphaela Vogel by Eleonora Milani; Berenice Olmedo by Jane Ursula Harris; Rindon Johnson in conversation with Isabel Parkes; Wu Tsang in conversation with Noam Segal; Demna by Charlie Robin Jones; A visual essay by Jenna Sutela; Letter from the City by Pavlo Makov; Artists at Risk (AR) in conversation with Frank Wasser.
