TEXTE ZUR KUNST: Trauern/Mourning

The June issue of TEXTE ZUR KUNST is dedicated to the politics of memory and forms of ritualized mourning in art and culture. Rather than focusing on an analysis of an ostensibly universal emotion or general state of affairs, the contributions look into the concrete and diverse practices of engagement with loss and grief as a continual challenge to society. Issue #126 addresses questions of loss and mourning in the context of racist and right-wing violence. At the same time, it draws attention to the transformative powers of grief. I was co-edition this issue together with ÇIĞDEM INAN and ELENA MEILICKE. And there’s also a contribution of mine: SOMETHING I DIDN’T KNOW I NEEDED HEALING FROM / A roundtable discussion with Fatma Aydemir, Gladys Kalichini, Talya Lubinsky, and Henrike Naumann, moderated by Mahret Ifeoma Kupka.
