In this issue, writer and philosopher Federico Campagna, in conversation with Andrea Bellini, explains that a world is a “‘likely story’ about reality” and that “after a while, each cosmological narration exhausts its narrative cycle and it comes to an end.” According to Campagna, each of us go through several “ends of the world.” Spanning from these reflections the issue is titled “Cultural Apocalypses” dedicating the cover story to Cao Fei which discusses her explorations of worlds both real and virtual with Daniel Birnbaum, Hou Hanru, Hans-Ulrich Obrist, and Philip Tinari.
