Imagine something new, like justice
Imagine something new, like justice is a publication project realised by the 2019-2021 fellows of the UdK Graduate School: Yalda Afsah, Salwa Aleryani, Neslihan Arol, Anthony R. Green, Mariam Mekiwi, Rindon Johnson, Didem Pekün and R A Walden. The intricacies of building societal, historical, corporeal and environmental justices today in theory and praxis make the common denominator among their sonic, visual, filmic, theatrical, literal, sculptural and installation oriented researches. Intersections, collapses, overlaps and resonances among their voices make this publication a unique artist book which questions the agency of imagination in the artistic, discursive and political realms. Imagine something new, like justice is also an investigation of transdisciplinarity in collective methodology where artist fellows, publisher, designer, editor and coordinator took steps further their designated labor division roles.
The publication has launched in September 2021 in cooperation with Archive Books, edited by Övül Ö. Durmuşoğlu, Seda Yıldız, Amelie Jakubek and the Graduate School. Design by Santiago da Silva.
The publication project was presented at the conference Secrets, Treasures, and Sharing - Forschen und Teilen? (25/26 June 2021) as part of the panel When Transdisciplinary Is a Collective Method: Publishing as a Political Tool with DAS Graduate School of the University of the Arts Amsterdam.
