Stillpoint Magazine's closing issue on transience, loss, and mourning.

This is a moment of global pandemic and precarity, we face the possibility and reality of loss perhaps more than any generation since the world wars. In this context, the reality of life’s transience—the inevitability of ends, of death—becomes unavoidably clear. On December 22, 2022, Stillpoint Magazine will launch TAKE CARE, our final issue—at least for now. This follows the sudden, unexpected end of funding at a time of growth and vibrant activity, a fate with which many artists and arts organizations must contend. What can we learn from this, or any, loss? In this issue, our community of writers and artists takes on the nature of transience, mourning, melancholia, bitter ends, and new beginnings. In essays, poetry, epistles, and experimental prose, our community “stays with the trouble” to delve into the nature of, and lessons in, grief. As we consider the nature and passage of time, and all things, we consider if, perhaps, beauty only grows sweeter when its presence is fleeting. Written contributions include those from Dr. Carlos Padrón, Dr. Vanessa Sinclair, Dimitra Ioannou, and more. Visual artworks include those from Tabitha Nikolai, Ben Dawson, Dagmar Schürrer, Rodrigo Nava Ramirez, and Driton Selmani. 

Launched in June of 2019, Stillpoint Magazine is a nonprofit, international magazine of contemporary art, literature, psychoanalysis, and theory. Stillpoint Magazine inhabits digital spaces to build public knowledge that’s rooted in community psychoanalysis and in collective, multiple, inclusive, radical, and hidden truths. We bring curated interdisciplinary scholarship, contemporary literature, and visual artwork to the public domain through our three open-source, concept based issues per year, and through our two Exclusive Supporters Issues for subscribers. During a period of uncertainty and conflict, we believe in the urgent, essential role of art, literature, and critical thinking and analysis, outside of historically-exclusionary institutions like universities, museums, and psychoanalytic institutes. In all we do at Stillpoint Magazine, we strive to continue becoming: anti-racist, feminist, queer, ecologically attentive, anti-colonial, and equitable.
