Launch: Errant Journal #3, DISCOMFORT

Framer Framed and Errant Journal are happy to invite you to the launch of Errant’s third issue on DISCOMFORT. This issue begins from the understanding that feelings of discomfort often reveal the boundaries of power relations in our societies. For the launch, editor-in-chief Irene de Craen will be joined by contributors Maaike Hommes and M.C. Julie Yu to give an introduction to the issue.

Errant #3 takes the ambiguous feeling of discomfort as a productive space to think from. What if instead of avoiding discomfort, we lean into it, dwell on it, stay with it so as to be able to learn from it? Central to the issue is the presence of discomfort as it accompanies the work of decoloniality, both in positions of marginalisation and of those who perhaps feel their comfort shaken for the first time. The contributions explore discomfort through personal histories, as well as curatorial, architectural & psychoanalytic perspectives.

Dalle Abraham, Amal Alhaag, Rebecca Glyn-Blanco, Irene de Craen, Maaike Hommes, m7red, Tomás Maldonado, Marwan Moujaes, Rita Ouédraogo, Ada M. Patterson, Aaron Schuster, Mmabatho Thobejane, M.C. Julie Yu.

Errant Journal is an international publication for cultural theory and practice aimed at bringing together diverse local perspectives on a global scale. By embracing the limits of our situated knowledge and the meaninglessness of a singular vantage point, Errant questions the politics of knowledge and representation through language, art and other disciplines. With its decolonial and pluriversal approach to themed issues related to (a.o.) geo/body-politics, museology, ecocide, and activism, it aims to connect theory with practice in an expansive field of knowledge.

Errant Journal is a concept by Irene de Craen.
Framed Framed is co-publisher and founding partner.
