Lithuanian Culture Institute presents: As A Journal magazine #1

2021-11-13 @ 15:30 - 17:00

The Lithuanian Culture Institute presents a new journal, * as a Journal, for readers around the world interested in culture.

The guest editors of the first issue are the duo of architects and researchers Jurga Daubaraitė and Jonas Žukauskas, who together with 26 artists, curators and researchers from Estonia, Great Britain, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland and Germany reflected on the theme of forest, resulting in the magazine changing from * as a Journal to Forest as a Journal.

Jurga and Jonas invite the readers to look at the forest as a man-made space that inevitably depends on its actions: “It is no longer nature, but rather infrastructure, an environment of natural systems that is managed, exploited and regulated by human interventions, technologies, industries, institutions and agencies.”

“In this issue, we analyse the practices and forces that shape and influence forest images and concepts. We ask how cultural practices expand the “optics” that help the public perceive the forest,” share the editors of the first issue, Jurga Daubaraitė and Jonas Žukauskas.
