Para Journal – Notes besides the Point is out with its first issue. More than 30 artists and writers based in 15 different cities, in 11 countries on 3,5 continents, from CDMX to Tblisi and from Dar es Salam to Glasgow have contributed with texts, drawings, thoughts and (counter-) fantasies around the topic of “Getting Lost”.
Lost in cables, lost in gadgets, technology and devices, lost in thoughts and memories, on outings, in images. Complexity and abundance (of things, options, hazards) allow for myriad ways to err and lose track, in often annoying, sometimes dangerous ways. Proximity – be it corporeal or virtual – puts us in constant touch with others, only to lose it with ourselves.
