THE RITUAL ISSUE
RITUALS HOLD PEOPLES TOGETHER IN THEIR NEED FOR CONNECTING AND TRANSCENDENCE. DETERMINED BY POWER AND THE HEGEMONIC FORCES WHICH ESTABLISH WHICH RITUALS ARE VALID, THE COLONIALIST MONOPOLY OF CATHOLICISM ALMOST COMPLETELY DISPLACED ANY OTHER SYMBOLIC SYSTEM THAT PROPOSED STRATEGIES OF RESISTANCE FOR NON-DOMINANT GROUPS AND POSITIONS.  IN THIS ISSUE, THE INVITED ARTISTS SHARE A DEEP PREOCCUPATION WITH THE INTERSECTION OF POLITICAL, SEXUAL, ECOLOGICAL AND SPIRITUAL REALMS. THEIR WORKS PUSH THE ASSOCIATION BETWEEN THIRD-WORLD, RACIALIZED, GENDERED BODIES AND COLONIAL HISTORY, POLITICAL ACTIVISM AND ANCESTRAL REFERENCES, SEXUAL POLITICS AND MYSTICAL SOURCES.
