“Reassemblage” is the title of the second installment of NOIA magazine.
Words and thoughts cannot really exhaust objects or images. Objects and images also have their own limitations. It is this then, throughout the complex network of relationships between these elements – objects, images, words, thoughts – that meanings are formed and unraveled. Reassemblage is a posture, an attitude toward life that triggers the collapse into a work practice of histories, identities, images, sensibilities, dreams, hopes, and futures.
This was the guiding/curatorial principle of NOIA 02: to take a chance as the development of the magazine progressed, encountering the artistic and intellectual labour of the contributors and facilitating these perspectives to coexist within a single multifaceted territory, in an attempt to flourish a complex landscape.
Our articles cover a spectrum of topics and disciplines, from the love story of a rabit.jpeg with a sofa.jpeg to the visual research behind photographing metal scraps, the experiment of creating a form of analogical writing or the significance of queer cruising spaces.
