Issue 09: Burnout

Fall/Winter 2022

This issue is dedicated to exploring how burnout can act as a catalyst for collaborating and collective organizing while also acknowledging the necessity for care in moments of exhaustion. The work presented in this issue digs into the complex power dynamics inherent to labor, care work, and unseen effort. How does burnout lead to precarity for small organizations, art spaces, or even personal practices? What does a post-burnout culture look like?

Cover: Andy Li, The Exhale, 2022.
