The sixth issue of the journal Re-visiones, published in the framework of the research project Visualidades críticas, reescritura de las narrativas a través de las imágenes [Critical Visualities, rewriting narratives through images], is entitled “Politics of the Image, Fictions of the Common.” Its editors Aurora Fernández Polanco and Pablo Martínez propose “to open up discourses that are considered inherent to image politics, understood as links between what is seen, what is thought, what is felt and what is said, rather than the compact mechanisms that organise what those in power see, think and say.”
Jaime Vindel has contributed to the publication with his essay “Fictions of the “As Not”: Messianic vocations of the common for a world beyond work and aesthetics”, which seeks to trace the survival of St Paul messianism at various different landmarks in political philosophy, social activism and contemporary art practices.
This issue includes a section with guest researchers (among others, Jacques Rancière in conversation with Aurora Fernández Polanco, Kowdo Eshun, Silvia Maglioni, Graeme Thomson, Isabel de Naverán and Leire Vergara), a special Focus on Adelita Husni Bey, a thematic dossier with texts by Cuauhtémoc Medina and Helena Chávez Mac Gregor, Jaime Vindel, Daniel Enrique Montero Fayad, Andrea de la Serna Alegre, Juan Martín Prada, Loreto Alonso Atienza and Marian Garrido Herrojo), a section of interviews and reviews.
Re-visiones is bilingual, in Spanish and English.
