What happens when the images come into the world? With or without its consent, civil society has been constantly imaged, recorded, documented, archived and exhibited. This omnipresence of images created, circulated, and displayed merits an analysis of the multiplicity of its forms and its roots.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 4, 2022

In the conclusion to Complaint! (2021), Sara Ahmed suggests that “even going through an exhausting of processes can have creative potential.” As much as exhaust signals finality, then, it also acquiesces to a sort of futurity and, in Ahmed’s understanding, even hopefulness: what can develop after we have exhausted all possibilities?

As a verb, “to exhaust” signals depletion and overconsumption as well as fatigue and overexertion. We have exhausted, and we are exhausted; threats of environmental and economic

As early as the 1920’s, Robert Musil remarked on the enormous effort it takes to stand still in a world that demands constant motion. Reflecting on the zooming street he sees through his window,the protagonist of Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften comments:

“Könnte man die Sprünge der Aufmerksamkeit messen, die Leistungen der Augenmuskeln, die Pendelbewegungen der Seele und alle die Anstrengungen, die ein Mensch vollbringen muss, um sich im Fluß einer Straße aufrecht zu halten, es käme vermutlich… eine Größe heraus, mit der verglichen die Kraft, die Atlas braucht, um die Welt zu stemmen.”

"Narratives of Catastrophe"

 

Newspaper headlines of recent years, detailing extreme weather events, the rising spectres of authoritarian movements and the surveillance state, not to mention the COVID-19 pandemic, describe conditions uncomfortably similar to those typically found in the dystopian novel. As one bookstore in Smalltown Canada put it, “the Apocalyptic Fiction section has now been moved to Current Affairs.”

From the global to the individual level, our sense of community has undergone a profound transformation within just a couple years. Where it once suggested closeness and intimacy, community now paradoxically demands that we maintain a healthy distance from one another—each one of us a monad tucked away in our respective homes, our old sources of community displaced as they transition to virtual formats. We even maintain patterns of disciplined isolation to protect the health and safety of those whom we would otherwise not need to consider.
