Twenty-five years after Gloria Anzaldúa published Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza, the U.S.–Mexico border is still “una herida abierta where the Third World grates against the first and bleeds.” As Anzaldúa would have predicted, this “bleed[ing]” is both violent and vital, destructive and constructive; anytime “a scab forms it hemorrhages again, the lifeblood of two worlds merging to form a third country—a border culture.” However, in ways Anzaldúa failed to see, this “blood” does not flow from a single Chicanx “country,” but rather through two settler states, dozens of Native nations, and countless migrant communities: the “blood,” in other words, does not flow from a single “border culture,” but rather through a range of border cul
Since COVID-19’s first infection, the virus has mutated. Each expected virological mutation summons increased governmental and medical surveillance, received both positively and suspiciously by the public. The instituted state of exception was most aggressively diagnosed by the Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben. Agamben, however, is not alone in theorizing the pandemic. Thinkers like Slavoj Zizek, Jean-Luc Nancy, Sergio Benevenuto, and Catherine Malabou have also published reflections on the virus’s spread. In fact, a veritable sub-section of academic publishing has emerged due to the virus.

The next issue of Disegno will investigate, from the perspective of design culture, the contemporary role and significance of cinema, film, VR and moving image installations within the context of the institutional, technological, and media-related developments and lifeworld in the twenty-first century. Our basic aim is to shed more light on how critically oriented design culture studies conceive of design not as it is in the world but how it creates our lifeworlds (Lebenswelten) as seamless webs of discursive meanings and sensual experiences. On closer inspection, our particular interest lies in how this worlding (scil. es weltet) can be understood in the realms of cinema and film making.
Conference dates: 23 and 24 September 2022; to be held online via Zoom
International conference, to be held in Bordeaux, France, on October 7-8, 2022

Between Heaven and Ground: exploring new atmospheres
The atmosphere is an ever-present component of the Earth, and although airy and diffuse, gives rise to an endless multiplicity of realisations, affects and presences. The epistemological and ontological vagueness of the atmosphere belies the criticality of the atmosphere as central to conditions of being (both human and more-than-human), and as a material site for attention and attunement. As Lyall Watson writes in Heaven’s Breath, ‘the more we learn about our atmosphere, the more substantial it becomes… close to being a living tissue in its own right’ (1985: 146).

Despite robust discourse on globalization and a perhaps momentary preoccupation with post-nationalism toward the end of the 20th century, nation and nationalism continue their tenacious hold on our imaginations—a hold that, given the state of global politics, surely deserves further and renewed explanation, unpacking, and critique.
