Afterall - Out of Place
English edition
This double issue aims to provide an "out of placeness" by looking beyond Western-centricity to a transnational, pluralist horizon, exploring the new imaginaries created by artists and thinkers from the "Global South", from Brazil to the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Afterall - Voicings
English edition
Issue 54 "Voicings" explores modes of being, perception and expression that have been historically and often violently disabled by society. Focusing on art practices that centre the perspective of D/deaf and non-verbal communicators, it proposes reconfigurations of voice, language and sound. It asks readers to tune into a chorus of voicings, not necessarily audible, but perceivable as "atmospheres", "vibrations", "rhythms".
Afterall - Medium/Metaphor/Milieu
English edition
Afterall #53 "Medium/Metaphor/Milieu" looks at the exhibitionary in and beyond exhibitions. Gathered through the notions of medium and milieu, it looks at a range of practices and modes of thinking that foreground the exhibitionary in concrete, spatial, architectural and experiential terms.
