The magazine includes portfolios with compelling narratives of 16 remarkable artsts and a splendid array of essays by thinkers and practitioners alike. The essays in this issue dare to think of a liveable planet in the future. Wanda Nanibush, for instance, speaks about the notions of radical inclusivity and relationality from Indigenous cultures and the destruction of land caused by extractive economies. Meanwhile, interdisciplinary collective Planetary Portals nudge our vision into the future with their use of artificial intelligence as a tool to create new connections to decolonial futures. The feature section brings together an interview between Vince Aletti and Sunil Gupta, who shows us what a great storyteller he is — all enveloped with candid portraits taken by Charan Singh. Finally, we look at a thought-provoking shelf of books by Demet Yıldız Dinçer and two catch-ups with previous Foam Talent alumni, Breno Rotatori and Sara Cwynar, featuring their brand-new works.
