The theme for Orlando Issue 01 is ‘history, memory and the future’, as a means to consider the past through the lens of the present, and allow for imaginative and progressive new ways of thinking about the future. The issue is particularly focused on the role of art in the space of social change and political engagement, from both the emerging and established. Contributions offer a careful and involved understanding of how history can be disrupted—through education, collective projects, or archival research—and re-read to understand contemporary culture.
Orlando 01 is edited by Philomena Epps, with contributions from Justin Bengry, India Doyle, Emily Carlton, Patricia Cronin, Georgia Horgan, Jade Jackman, Poppy Jackson, Catie Keck, Mary Kelly, Megan Pickering, Sophie Risner, Alice Wroe, and also featuring submissions from Asia Art Archive, Bishopsgate Institute, Black Cultural Archives, Glasgow Women’s Library, Iniva, Imperial War Museum, Irish Queer Archive, London Metropolitan Archives, Rukus! Federation, and the UVIC Transgender Archives.
