Issue no. 3

June 2021 - September 2021


Daniel Schlierenzauer/Memento


1 story every 3 weeks from mid-June until the beginning of September

 In this issue the past comes to comfort or to haunt us through the materiality of objects, memories and places. Orkideh Behrouzan tells of visual memories of childhood and war. Helena Wulff finds a fountain pen bearing memories of those long dead. Tamás Máhr recalls rehearsed ceremonies and national anthems. Kuo Zhang revisits ‘Colorado’s Grand Canyon’ in Beijing. Finally, Lana Askari films memories of war, death and dislocation.
