On Invasion

Issue editors: Helena Grehan and Miriam Haughton

ISSN: 1352-8165 (2024) 28:3

We live in a world of unpredictability, fracture and powerlessness. Acts of violence, invasion and oppression, both seen and unseen, pervade all aspects of life and threaten the viability of the planet. Yet, perhaps because of this powerlessness and fracture, this is also a time of solidarity, of acts of resistance both large and small, and of friendship, love and bravery. The contributions to ‘On Invasion’ negotiate in creative and provocative ways this confusing and confounding time and in doing so they ask us to consider the role, value and power of art to intervene, to destabilize, to disrupt and to question the status quo.
