4-6 pm at Framer Framed in Amsterdam

Framer Framed and Errant Journal are happy to invite you to the launch of Errant’s fifth issue Learning from Ancestors. Epistemic Restitution and Rematriation. This issue focuses on current discussions around the restitution of colonially looted objects, but takes a wider lens to the questions of repair with(in) communities and the more fundamental knowledge shifts which must take place for healing to begin. We welcome you to celebrate the latest Errant together with us, with drinks and an introduction to the theme by editor-in-chief Irene de Craen.

Framer Framed and Errant Journal are happy to invite you to the launch of Errant’s 4th issue States of Statelessness. This issue focuses on the harmful fiction of the nation state and celebrates alternative forms of solidarity and community-building. For the launch, editor-in-chief Irene de Craen will be joined by select contributors to give an introduction to the issue.

Errant Journal is part of GAK’s programme publics&publishings; a range of contributions dedicated to spaces both as frameworks for activity and as normative codings, speaking to and with art in different ways. At the same time, the platform will discuss and negotiate questions of plurivocal publishing. For the duration of the programme, the space in Bremen is converted to a temporary bookstore where Errant Journal is sold (among others). On December 16, Errant editor-in-chief Irene de Craen will give a presentation.

Saturday 6 August from 7 pm, we have a little launch party at Hopscotch Reading Room in Berlin for our friends, friends of friends and anyone else who’d like to drop by. Hopscotch is the English language bookstore in Berlin centering non-western & diasporic perspectives.

During the AICA Salon titled ‘Wie maakt er nog nieuwe tijdschriften?’ (Who still makes new magazines?) Errant editor-in-chief Irene de Craen has been invited to discuss Errant Journal.

Errant Journal is part of Il Gazzettino, Via Garibaldi, Venice. Organized by Studio Lukas Feireiss & Friends.

As an uninvited and unofficial event on occasion of the 59th International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia, a small kiosk is transformed for one afternoon only, into a discursive platform for indie magazines and artist publications from around the world. Located right between the two main exhibition venues – the Giardini and the Arsenale – the newsstand “Il Gazzettino“ on the lively Via Garibaldi becomes an informal meeting place to get together, discuss, exchange and connect. The project is a celebration of self-published printed matter and an ode to the urban typology of the kiosk as a democratic space for the dispensation of knowledge and information.

Launch Errant Journal #3 on DISCOMFORT, Saturday 9 April 4-6 pm at Framer Framed in Amsterdam.

Framer Framed and Errant Journal are happy to invite you to the launch of Errant’s third issue on DISCOMFORT. This issue begins from the understanding that feelings of discomfort often reveal the boundaries of power relations in our societies. For the launch, editor-in-chief Irene de Craen will be joined by contributors Maaike Hommes and M.C. Julie Yu to give an introduction to the issue.

Errant Podcast on Radio Alhara, every 3rd Wednesday of the month, 2.30 pm Bethlehem time.

Radio Alhara is a communal online radio station that broadcasts from Bethlehem, Ramallah, Amman and other places to the world. Founded at the beginning of the pandemic by Elias and Yousef Anastas, Yazan Khalili, Saeed Abu Jaber, and Muthanna Hussain. The radio is a platform through which the community of the producers and listeners explore the rich terrain of sound. We host live and recorded music sets by a continually expanding roster of amateur and professional DJs, composers and sound artists, and broadcast soundtracks, audio documentaries and essays, conversations and interviews, podcasts, poetry, speeches, movies but also any and all sounds that pique our curiosity and further our appreciation for listening. At Radio Alhara, we want to carve out a sonic space that fosters experiences of collective listening and exchange and have fun doing it. It’s a communal media that dimensions that distance between the producers and the listeners. 

Go to Radio Alhara.

We are very happy to announce that our friends at Hopscotch Reading Room in Berlin are organizing a Publishers’ Fair and Errant Journal has been invited to join. The fair will host various small and micro publishers who constitute the invaluable independent publishing ecology of Berlin. Come and meet publisher friends, artists, artist-publishers, and acquaintances based mostly in Berlin and its environs, who will be selling publications in Hopscotch’s hof. The bar will be open with their regular drinks as well as a special cocktail. There will also be delicacies from their local Indian Imbiss available for sale at cost.

See for more info Hopscotch’s FB event.

Crisis Imaginaries, Chapter 5: On Slow Violence and the Anti-Spectacle. With: Connie Zheng

This event, organized by Framed Framed and the Goethe-Institut Niederlande, begins from the question of representing slow violence, through discussing Connie Zheng’s recent article for Errant’s second issue — on aesthetic representations of environmental disaster (‘Amidst slow violence: cascading reincarnations in Thao Nguyen Phan’s Becoming Alluvium‘). Thinking on the distancing, overwhelming effect of images of climate catastrophe so often plastered across media; what do these images do, and not do?

With this frame we turn toward Zheng’s own practice, and specifically her work around seeds as speculative futures. Together, De Craen and Zheng will guide us in a screening of Zheng’s film Seedtime (2020) and a discussion of anti-spectacular action and practice responding to climate collapse.
