Afterall Journal

Issue 54

Issue 54 ‘Voicings’ explores modes of being, perception and expression that have been historically and often violently disabled by society. Focusing on art practices that centre the perspective of D/deaf and non-verbal communicators, it proposes reconfigurations of voice, language and sound. It asks readers to tune into a chorus of voicings, not necessarily audible, but perceivable as ‘atmospheres’, ‘vibrations’, ‘rhythms’.

Editors: Elisa Adami, Amanda Carneiro, Nav Haq, Mark Lewis, Adeena Mey, Chloe Ting, and Charles Stankievech.

Founding editors: Charles Esche, Mark Lewis.
