Contemporary Other – Publication Launch
1. Contemporary Other was formed out the desire to dedicate a sole publication to the modern marginalised identity. To deny the standardisations of our cultural and artistic diet and give precedence to diversity of thought.
2. CO is a limited biannually printed publication – A celebration of alienated voices, artists, thinkers and activists. We stand in solidarity with these voices and acknowledge their contribution/necessity to the fields of art, performance, politics and culture.
3. CO is interested in building a platform for the documentation and discussion of subjectivity for the modern ‘others’ experience.As the idea of the ‘other’ and ‘otherness’ is pivotal to sociological analysis of how majority and minority identities are constructed in society. Contemporary Other therefore is interested in the dismissal of the majority and favouring the other.
