COLLATERAL provides a multilingual online platform for encounters between text and image, between art and analysis, and between critical and artistic research. COLLATERAL is committed to modes of meticulous reading that interrogate and trace the migration of artefacts’ meanings and forms beyond cultural, linguistic, and disciplinary borders. Every issue clusters a number of interventions—artistic, literary, critical, and/or theoretical—around one text, image, or video. Staging interventions that test the limits of customary disciplinary and generic conventions, COLLATERAL affirms critical reading as a practice that confronts even as it resists a damaged world.
