The theme for the Fall Issue is “An Archive.”
Webster’s defines an “archive” as no more than “a repository or collection.” But, in an age when we have accumulated more information than any single person could comprehend, we suspect that archives can be (should be?) more than that. From Alexandria to archive.org, humans have tried to collect. And lost. What was on scrolls in a jar not to be found, or lost in fire and ice, or on a cassette or floppy disk in an attic with no machine to read it? Artists like Kabokov, Warhol, and Phillips and writers like Borges, Sebald, and O’Brien have created, explored, and referenced various archives. Since there can be no single archive of all information, how do we parse what we have, knowing that it will always be incomplete? What are the systems that writers and artists have devised in their own work? We want you to tell us, to show us “an archive”…—
