Errant Journal - Issue #2, Spring/Summer 2021
Errant Journal is a new periodical published by Framer Framed, a contemporary art institution in Amsterdam. They chose the title Slow Violence, in order to bring the rather abstract concept of ´climate change´ back in relation to the underlying necropolitics.
Coined by Rob Nixon, the term is generally defined by the often used quote from his book that reads: ‘By slow violence I mean a violence that occurs gradually and out of sight, a violence of delayed destruction that is dispersed across time and space, an attritional violence that is typically not viewed as violence at all.’
Moving away from a universal narrative and addressing the different roles people, companies, and nation states play, also opens up the possibility to address the call for climate justice; a topic addressed in a special section of this issue edited by Radha D’Souza and Jonas Staal.
128 pages, softcover.
