MASKS, Issue 1: Faux Families

15.00

Birth, Nuclear, Typological, Adopted, Formal, Blood. These terms, in one fashion or another, have assumed a schizophrenic role: acting formations of familiar designations or consequently familiar lies. Fathoming empty hopes for our never ending desire to control and/or belong to the world around us, they provide a way to adopt our reality.

Faux Families exploits our insatiable longing for be-longing. It infiltrates our conscious and unconscious disciplinary behavior. Conceived at a time that has been dubbed the age after-belonging, the second issue of Masks will take a closer look at the structures of connectivity and the patterns of disconnection at work.

This theme of Issue 1 craves diagnostic self-portraits, insights from a self-imposed nonage, tearing down the creative ego and the mise-en-scène of familial bondage that may foster a sense of belonging yet hinder a projection of creative epiphany. It is especially interested in new object research, development of prototypes for new communal concepts, representational work, and unique interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary alliances.
