MOST RECENT ISSUE

Fall 2021

We are gradually waking up in a world that hasn't felt like our own for quite some time. We can and may take to the streets again; living and experiencing with others. The need for dialogue and engagement is great. This new autumn issue of FORUM+ also reflects this sentiment, as it is bustling with insights, frameworks and examples that encourage reflection on our role in society: from dramaturgy to jewellery design, from photography to multilingual poetry.

Wake up the world

Whatever you do and whoever you are, we are convinced that you can make a difference in the world. We need your courage, perspective, understanding and/or imagination. You have a voice, so don’t be afraid to use it. It could be of vital importance.

How do you shake up and colour the world? Maybe you are in a non-profit, often help out a neighbour or like to make uplifting postcards?

Previous issue: Spring 2021

What happens when the arts step out of the realm of aesthetics? Our dealings with art, whether in repertoire or creation, sometimes expose societal privileges and injustices. The artists themselves know this, and all too often they are forced to occupy the harsh no man's land between voluntary recalcitrance and involuntary precarity.

What about the relationship between art and political revolution? More questions, and even a few answers, can be found in the new Spring issue of FORUM+.
