March is a journal of art & strategy.

CURRENT FEATURES

Counter-Infrastructures: Art & Activism asks how artistic strategies can help us to develop and support social formations that are durable beyond the timescales of the immediate moment, project timeline or crisis, towards “counter-infrastructures” that underpin new ways of living and being together within and against the dominance of extractive and destructive capitalist intersectionally discriminatory systems. Following a Counter-Infrastructures Symposium organized with the National College of Art and Design (NCAD) in Dublin, Ireland December 4-5, a series of reports will be published online in the new year.

From Multidirectional Memory to Multidirectional Moments (MDM) explores the “promises” of noncompetitive and transversally connected “multidirectional memory” in memorial practices. Following the MDM Symposium held November 16-18 in Vienna, online presentations include contributions from Lia Carreira and Bernhard Garnicnig, and more to be announced.
