The new issue of The Large Glass No.27/28 is composed as a kind of collection of works of authors that range across a spectrum moving from humanist approaches to posthumanism (or anti-anthropocentrism), including a range of thematic discussions, artistic projects and essays discussing, contextualizing and criticizing various issues that bring together scholars of cultural studies, art history, politics, geography, philosophy and related disciplines together with artists, allowing for a broad range of insights into the topic both historically and in the contemporary context. The volume comprises three key sections linked directly or tangentially consist of a compilation of approaches and a synthesis of visual materials regarding posthuman corporaility, anxieties about the landscape and thematic ideas about the radical Political horizon.
These points are echoed in the work of many authors in their posthuman orientation, and this issue provides a preliminary framework for this combination of contributions to the posthumanities and primarily to explore their cultural and artistic implications. It shows that posthumanist debates are interrelated and thus require much more assembling, and in that sense the issue 27/28 of the Large Glass is an inherently interdisciplinary venture, which is why the volume of essays and artistic works includes contributions from a range of disciplines.
