Release of VIS #9

VIS issue 9 will be released on 14 March during the Artistic Research Spring Forum 2023. VIS’ Editorial members and editors for the issue, Serge von Arx and Eliot Moleba, will present the latest issue themed “of Memory and Public Space”. Shauheen Daneshfar, featured in VIS #9, will elaborate on his contribution “Scented Rooms”.

This issue of VIS looks at the public space as the archive of human collectivity. Manifestations, traces and scars in all different shapes and forms of expression form the ever growing, ever changing morphology of power and resistance in our physical surrounding. Through seven expositions, VIS Issue 9 manifests and forms a critical dialogue, from multiple entry points both artistically and thematically, of researchers and artists whose work is engaging and questioning the role of public art in embodying public memory.

The release of VIS is streamed here (also viewable afterwards).
