ArtworkVol. 2Curatorial-Editorial Statement and Introduction

Yvon Bonenfant

The second volume of Experiments and Intensities takes us on a journey through and around an impossibly utopian notion – a sort of opposite of the experience of the traumatic, which we’re calling ‘ex-trauma’. We’re seeking not the expression of, or recovery from, trauma – though these themes certainly come up – but rather, we wonder whether the traumatic has an inverse, and if so, whether artists can help us identify it.
