In the coming issue we wish to focus on political geographies, as well as artistic interventions in, and reimaginations of, such geographies. The distinction between "place" and "space" is of particular interest, as it is fundamental not only to much art, but also to our global situation within neoliberal political geography. If time has come for us to reimagine this geography, as well as the interrelationships between, and definitions of "space" and "place", is it thinkable that art could be an ideal site for such reimagination?

If there is 'no friend', then how could I call you my friends, my friends? By what right? How could you take me seriously? If I call you my friends, my friends, if I call you, my friends, how dare I add, to you, that there is no friend?
- Jacques Derrida, The Politics of Friendship (1994)
From this day forth, I would like you all to report to me your findings on the magic of friendship when, and only when, you happen to discover them.
