As a Journal / 4
Limited in space, bodies are immense in their potentiality. Today, in the face of a crisis – ecological, military, economic and social – it is their vulnerability that defines them most. Guest edited by Neringa Černiauskaitė, a writer, curator and one half of the artistic duo Pakui Hardware, the issue scrutinizes vulnerability in order to show that it is often evoked by systemic flaws rather than personal failures. At the same time, vulnerability is not treated here as something to be anxious about, but as a tool for building community, for transforming rigid structures, for bringing the flesh into theory, and to open up oneself to the other.
The * as a Journal is intended for readers of the world interested in modern culture. It is an exceptional space of cultural cooperation, where creators, curators and researchers from Lithuania and various foreign countries meet collectively to reflect on topical topics, and readers are invited to look at them from unexpected cultural perspectives.
