Issue #12.2: What Now?

October 2020

Volume #1 of our Covid issue entitled, Interior Lives, asked contributors to write a score, so as to reach out from their confined spaces and make bodily contact. As we began to receive our contributions, it became apparent to us that connecting is also a way of bringing about change regarding how we think about and feel through our bodies.

It is as if the landscape has changed or, to use Lena Hammergren’s term, as if the bodyscape has shifted. Volume #2 takes up this theme of corporeal change by posing its contributions as a series of topographic interventions, which reshape the body and its corporeal milieu.
