KAJET Journal seeks to be more than just a mere signal from the periphery and to move beyond a purely anecdotal understanding of Eastern Europe. Concentrating the scope of interest onto the past, present, and future of communities inside Eastern Europe, you can find what lies at the heart of KAJET's first issue: a rejuvenation of the contemporary imaginations of what the notion of community used to mean, currently means, and will continue to mean.
18 essays, accompanied by 18 visual projects, created by 40 writers and artists, structured into 5 chapters:
I. Being and Easternness—tackles the existence of an Eastern European paradigmatic identity;
II. Rituals of Resistance—explains how and why Eastern European communities resort to various mechanisms of self-defence;
III. Poor, but Sexy—covers the mixture of sub/countercultural dangers and ecstasies, perils and delights that shape this part of Europe;
IV. Visions of Space—narrates the geo-spatial structures of Eastern European architectonics by eliciting new conceptualisations of space;
V. Erecting Walls vs. Crossing Bridges—indulges our own fascination with a borderless world by incorporating the idea of dismantling walls to the benefit of constructing (and crossing) bridges.
