Fully aware that in these times, our “interaction” with “other” cultures and with nature is both inevitable and profoundly altering; we will consider other modes of framing action and existence that identity politics, shepherding nature and “I”. How ELSE can we consider the implosion of exiled states; the entropic influx into the largest cities; the sinking of smaller ones; the collapsing distance between us? How to live now in the “eruption of desire for the future which reshapes the present” — to become imperceptible?

ELSE is a peer-reviewed journal of works, projects, and research thematically gravitating towards memory, forgetting, trauma and the archive; language/image; international diaspora and post-colonialism; role of art in peace meditation; liminality; space/place; temporary architecture; foreignness, otherness and the uncanny.
