Hosted at the ICI Berlin, this series is dedicated to exploring how diverse cultures can be brought into fruitful rather than pernicious confrontation. Defining culture in a deliberately broad sense that also includes different discourses and disciplines, it seeks to identify tensions both between different cultures and within each culture, and investigates the productive potential of these tensions. The series aims to open up spaces of inquiry, experimentation, and intervention. Its emphasis lies in critical reflection and in identifying and highlighting contemporary issues and concerns, even in publications with a historical orientation. Following a decidedly cross-disciplinary approach, it aims to enact and provoke transfers among the humanities, the natural and social sciences, and the arts. The series will include a plurality of methodologies and approaches, binding them through the tension of mutual confrontation and negotiation rather than through homogenization or exclusion. Publications are monolingual and English is the preferred language, but publications in German will also be considered.
