How to love a homeland Oxana Timofeeva

Published by Kayfa ta, 2020, 86 pages, 9.6 × 14.8 cm, English

Price: €7

Russian writer and philosopher Oxana Timofeeva was born and grew up in various parts of the USSR. The book explores the difficulty of reducing one’s sense of homeland to one’s country alone, the philosophical interconnectedness of movement and rootedness, our plant and animal souls, and how we need to reimagine our desired, fictional if need be, homelands. The book interweaves vignettes from Timofeeva’s childhood across different parts of the USSR with a philosophical discussion of ideas on homeland in the thought of Brecht, Deleuze and Guattari, and other main figures of literature and philosophy. Design template by Julie Peeters. Cover illustration by Jumana Emil Abboud.

L’orso allo specchio Simone Forti

Published by Kunstverein Publishing Milan, 2020, 94 pages (b/w ill.), 16 × 23 cm, Italian

Price: €20

”Iʼve gathered so many books (….), all about the family. This is all washing over me like a waterfall. I canʼt figure out the genealogy, the chronology flows like currents that wind around each other at different rates. (…). And now Iʼm recognizing that Iʼm part of this tribe, this family of writers writing about our tribe.”

These sentences can be found in Simone Fortiʼs new publication, The Bear in the Mirror – a wonderful collection of stories, prose-poems, drawings, photos, letters, notes and memories.

Simone Forti dives into the (his)stories of her family and of the woollen mills they once owned, trying to put all the myths and fragments of information into some kind of perspective.

Edited by Roos Gortzak and Quinn Latimer. Designed by Nerijus Rimkus.
