#54 Winter 2018

We are in an interregnum, an in-between state where the old world is dying and the new struggles to be born. Colonies of bacteria are decomposing the white cube, automation will replace work, and a hope persists that digital space will produce a truly different art. The avant-garde is still alive, but as a stateless multitude that rejects the rhetoric of power. Quantum computers are starting to compute. This issue asks about the shape of things to come.
