Limited Edition of 300
awham issue #5 ‘The Haunted Issue’ reflects
on the struggles of the day woven into the reanimated
stories from yesterday in the infinity of the multiverse
– an endless variety of worlds and the spaces between
them. Destruction and recreation, an active remaking
of worlds, rediscovering ones that were lost and forgetting
those mapped into our consciousness.
What role do ghosts of the past play in deciphering
and encoding observations of what surrounds us?
Where do these ghosts clamber? How can we rethink
our understanding of the world through the occult
practices and reflect on our relationships which travel
through bits of code, moving and transmitting within
open waters, and concealed within undersea cables?
The contributors Akshay Sethi, Aliaskar Abarkas, Alice Yuan Zhang, Balfua, Basel Abbas, Cansu Yildiran, Cristian Anutoiu, Defne Gizakça, Doga Deniz Gönüllü, Laura Cugusi, Maryos Syawish, Musa Shadeedi, Ruanne Abou-Rahme, Sara Cheikh, Sarnt Utamachote and Xaarchive share their practices of buildingshelters and strategies for nourishing gardens and
sought ways to articulate the creative power of world-building. Discover the created temporal and spatial portals and pathways between what was, what is, and what could be!
This issue of awham is edited by Mudar Al-Khufash (also responsible for Art Direction), Ipek Erdol (also responsible for Creative Direction and Design), Janset Genel and Yehudit Yinhar.
