This book is a collection of essays by Teju Cole, an American writer and photographer. These essays reflect on his experience of being black and living a cosmopolitan lifestyle in an (only sometimes) cosmopolitan world. It’s an analysis of writing, music, conversations, places and images that he loves or that have disturbed him. When Cole considers each of these he translates his responses into a kind of personal archive, that counteracts rootlessness and condenses them into something that has shared meaning.

Read Thread is an artist book by Cecilia Vicuna, a writer and visual artist, that invites us to follow the thread beyond the western linear idea of time towards an endless movement of celestial patterns and its reflection in the human and landscape body. Vicuna, who left Chile 1973 during the dictatorship first for London, lived then in Bogota and after in New York, refers back to different indigenous concepts and techniques, which she poetically and politically interprets and places in tension with the current ecological and economical disaster.

Jill Casid is a historian, theorist and practising artist based in the US. This study draws on an extraordinary range of resources for cultural criticism to explore colonial landscapes in the eighteenth century and their legacy today. In tracing the language and visual culture of plants and horticulture from literature, botanical illustration, garden design, and written archives she considers associations between colonial landscapes and heteronormativity. Casid gathers together and multiplies feminist, queer and postcolonial readings of concepts such as hybridity, productivity, fertility, rootedness, and displacement.
