PUBLIC 37: Public?
20th Anniversary Issue, Spring 2008
Edited by Aleksandra Kaminska, Janine Marchessault, and Jason Rovito
“In seeking to capture the journal’s ambition to interrogate and complicate this very terrain, we have replaced the period with the question mark: is public still a useful term with which we can think about culture and politics, art and technology? Does it remain relevant to our efforts to define the political and imagine new forms of intervention, engagement, and interference that may transform the parameters of citizenship, community, and our understandings of democracy? In short: does public mean anything anymore?” — The Editors, from the introduction, which you can read in full here.
