FOCUS: Artistic and Intellectual Hospitality

All the authors describe different local initiatives, which in one way or another confront the tensions and difficulties in working in surrounding hostile environments at this contemporary moment.

The issue has been developed from Fataneh Farahani’s project “Cartographies of Hospitality” funded by Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation. The project has benefited from a residency period at STIAS, The Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study, South Africa.
