War notes and new fellowships

Dear friends,

With Putin’s war on Ukraine entering its third horrific week, writers from the region have been shedding light on the growing political, humanitarian, and cultural ramifications of the war. e-flux Notes has become a hub for this kind of analysis, with artists and cultural thinkers examining the conflict in critical time from unique and surprising angles:

—Ekaterina Degot argues that one of the most potent weapons against Putinism can be Russian culture itself.

—Volodymyr Artiukh urges the Western left to rethink its geopolitical assumptions and interdependencies in light of Putin’s aggression.

—Keti Chukhrov dismantles Putin’s claim that NATO expansion is the reason Russia invaded Ukraine.

—Arseny Zhilyaev proposes that for Russian artists, “perhaps today what matters more than refusing to work is working for peace.”

In other news, we are pleased to announce three six-month e-flux journal fellowships for 2022. This year we would like to specifically invite applicants from Ukraine and its bordering countries who are currently living there or staying abroad. The fellowship is an opportunity for a period of focused reading, research, and study with the journal’s contents as a starting point. One goal of this fellowship is to identify thematic drifts, latencies, and tendencies that could be further explored. It can also provide space to expand on conversations, contradictions, and other forms of discourse between and beyond the existing contributions. The fellowship will begin May 1, 2022 and offers a monthly stipend of 500 USD. Applicants should submit a 500-word research proposal and CV to journal [​at​] e-flux.com by April 15.

With warmth, 
your colleagues at e-flux
