The global unconcious: art, technology, scienceVol 2 No 1 (2019)
Featuring articles in the traditions of Sigmund Freud and Carl Gustav Jung, this issue of Inscriptions interrogates approaches to the term unconscious in contexts such as petroleum-driven culture, the 9/11 memorial in New York, the relation between art and society on the work of Bjarne Melgaard, and our current era of a global internet and social media culture. We also feature art by Stefan Chazbijewicz, a filmmaker, poet and visual artist based in Poland, who seeks to establish a mystic space of what he refers to as “salvaged reality” in his work.

Consecrations: The philosophy of Wolfgang Schirmacher and the passing of the humanVol 1 No 1 (2018)
This inaugural issue of Inscriptions features three previously unpublished translations of original work by Wolfgang Schirmacher, as well as a comprehensive interview with him conducted in Dresden, Germany, in February this year. We have made avaliable parts of the interview that were not included in the article as audio files here. Also in this issue is a contribution from Daniel Fraser that takes a phenomenological approach to what it is that happens when we put our book down and no longer read, while three literary contributions variously bring up spectrality, romance and memory.
