ELSE Journal launch issue 2: “The Imperceptible Self”
Our third issue will be available via on demand publication for the first time as well as the free online issue “Calameo” March 1, 2017 here.

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 than 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?

Contributors include: Adrian Piper, Carol Becker, Akil Kirlew, Jean-Ulrick Desert, Alexandra Ross, Gayle Meikle, Analia Sirabonian, Caroline Koebel, Jennie Klein, Sonia Barrett, Ian Burkhart, Luisa Greenfield, Mark Roth, Morgan O’Hara, Rachel Dedman, Ayman Hassan, Rachel Stevens and Susie Quillinan.

ELSE is a peer-reviewed works, projects, and research journal 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.

About Transart
We believe that education is not just a paper-chase and is most relevant, effective and powerful when vitally connected to projects and initiatives in the world—beyond the walls of the academy. By its very nature, Transart creates international research communities that encourage and promote conversation and collaboration between artists, writers, curators, and thinkers across cultures. Driven by our students desires rather than the demands of bureaucracy and real estate we remain agile, responsive and nomadic; currently meeting in Berlin and New York.
