Since its launch in 1999, "Afterall", a journal of art, context, and enquiry, has offered in-depth considerations of the work of contemporary artists, along with essays that broaden the context in which to understand it. Published three times a year, "Afterall" also features essays on art history and critical theory. "Issue 31" looks at artists working with or influenced by migration and cultural politics. Among the artists featured are Lukas Duwenhogger, Paul Chan, Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz, Ivan Kozaric, Sven Augustijnen, Almgul Menlibayeva, and Slavs and Tatars, all of whose work focuses on or traverses different art centers and peripheries. Cultural theorist Vassilis Tsianos contributes an essay looking at European migration in relation to the eurozone crisis. "Issue 32" looks at pictorialism today and its role as an artistic strategy. Artists featured are James Welling, Pae White, Simryn Gill, Ahlam Shibli, David Claerbout, and Saloua Raouda Chocair. Artist Trevor Paglen contributes an essay on image making as a form of communication, while film theorist Maxa Zoller writes about the haptic, or, what is excluded by a too-tight focus on visuality.
