Launch: Errant Journal #4, States of Statelessness
Framer Framed and Errant Journal are happy to invite you to the launch of Errant’s fourth issue States of Statelessness. This issue focuses on the harmful fiction of the nation state and celebrates alternative forms of solidarity and community-building. For the launch, editor-in-chief Irene de Craen will be joined by contributor Isshaq Albarbary to give an introduction to the issue.
With Errant Journal’s 4th issue we tackle the imaginary nature of the nation state, and look into alternative forms of solidarity, community and belonging that are disconnected from or even antagonistic to this form of governance and in which a migrant or otherwise marginalised position can be seen as one of power and resistance. States of Statelessness delves into the diverse manners in which people respond to their precarious relations to nation and nationality in practical, poetic and community-based ways. But more than that, this issue is a celebration of the ways in which people are able to stand their ground, to exist in fluidity, and a commemoration of those before us that have shown that other ‘states’ are possible.

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.
