NO NIIN: at the Cusp of Art, Criticality and Love

Taiteellinen työ / siihen pohjautuva työ | Kaksivuotinen

NO NIIN is an online monthly magazine at the cusp of art, criticality, and love. Co-founded and co-edited by Elham Rahmati and Vidha Saumya, NO NIIN absorbs the disruptive sparks emerging from the intersectional art and culture environs that counter the status quo, aspiring to develop them as springboards for new ways of thinking and working towards hope, liberation, and building transnational, feminist, and anti-imperialist solidarities. NO NIIN is a critical locus for discourse, aspiring to provoke difficult conversations that develop over time—to ask questions that can help artistic communities grow and look at their practice from more challenging perspectives. In 2023-24, we publish 16 issues curated on the following objectives: Internationalism in Artistic Practices In support of shared struggles for equality and social and ecological justice, this objective builds from a place-based understanding of the world: one grounded in situated histories, rooted in communities and lands, and intimately connected across geographies. NO NIIN stands for the craft of organising transnational, planetary solidarities while emphasising the critical role of internationalist art and culture in shaping our shared struggles and desires. Popularising Research Researchers pave the way for institutional and discursive constructions. Their work affects the development of the arts, social inclusion, and equity and brings systemic changes in society. NO NIIN is an accessible publishing space where researchers diversify their writing practice and maximise the impact of their research by effectively communicating with the general public. Fostering Intergenerational Dialogues By opening up conversations between generations, we highlight uncommunicated lives and experiences. Bridging this wide communication gap between generations creates a space for resistance and repair in a scene often divided by presumptions, stereotypes, ethnocultural origins, and social hierarchies.
