Out now! No. 2 2016: Constructed Identities
Hot off the press, the latest issue of Kunstlicht is out now! Constructed Identities takes you on a trip through Europe and a little beyond — a journey through space, as well as time. The issue explores a selection of case studies to consider the selective uses of history in heritage, and it puts forth alternative approaches to question established definitions of identity. Featuring articles by Lila Athanasiadou, Isa Fahrenholz and Svenja Binz, Abla elBahrawy, Arna Mackic, Katinka de Jonge, and interviews with Jennifer Tosch and Wendelien van Oldenborgh. Artworks by Guy Köningstein, and on the cover a drawing by the Georgian artist Lado Darakhvelidze!
