Brooklyn, NY 11205

Please join us at e-flux in Brooklyn on Wednesday, February 22, for the New York launch of e-flux journal issue 133 with issue contributors Serubiri Moses, Kateryna Iakovlenko, and Thotti, and several e-flux journal editors.

Serubiri Moses will deliver a short talk following his piece, “Luck, Statecraft, and Withdrawal: Video Criticism in Southeast Asia.” Kateryna Iakovlenko will speak with us live from Kyiv about “Exactly That Body: Images Against Oppression.” Artist and filmmaker Thotti will say a few words on “We Too Were Modern,” an epic three-part series of essays on colonial modernity in Brazil. Part one, “Of Brazilian Autophagic Flowers and Navigators,” appears in the present issue, which also features texts by Jörg Heiser, Franco “Bifo” Berardi, Beny Wagner, and Jussi Parikka.

Also in the issue, in which forests, celestial entities, and national corpses are considered alongside humans, Jörg Heiser writes that “the messy, radical, pragmatic business of transforming our economic and social system has to start now.” In the editorial we ask, “For those of us who have managed to survive until now, how do we start this transformation? And what is the state of our bodies and minds?” (Bifo has thoughts on this topic). Let’s find out together? See you soon.
