Dear readers, 

By now, we have long been aware of our enmeshment in one tiny piece of a fractured universe. The contents of each of our screen-based views on the world differ in a minute or profound ways based on the particularities of our feeds and algorithms. How do images of war play into—and stare back at us from—our divergent fields of vision? How might physical proximity affect how we see violence at a digital distance? 

With such questions in mind, we have a simple favor to ask you. When you have a minute to spare, could you type a single phrase into your image search engine, take a screenshot of the results, and send us what you see? Here is the phrase: “the war in Ukraine.” 

By October 15, please send a screenshot of your image search along with your current location (city and country), the date when it was taken, your age, and gender to journal [​at​] e-flux.com with the subject line “images of war.” 

One of our 2022 e-flux journal fellows, the Ukrainian curator and researcher Kateryna Iakovlenko, is exploring images of violence and tyranny in media and photography in the context of the war in Ukraine. She is interested in what we assume to be violent images and how their meaning and appearance differ from the digital perspective. In the most enormous sense, she is interested in concretely seeing how various media shapes our understanding of violence. 

The current e-flux journal fellows are in their last month with us. The fellowship is an opportunity for a six-month 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 next fellowship will begin in January 2023 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 November 15.
