Reflections on Care and Yugofuturism

The Publishing Practices of Theater Platform Maska

Ljubljana-based theater platform Maska began over a century ago with a journal for critically reflecting and discussing theater practices. Today, they support the theater scene while continuing and challenging the legacy of the organization and its publishing practices. Some of their most recent publications include Bojana Kunst’s book Politics of Care at the Crossroad of Art and Life (translated and published by transversal texts as Das Leben der Kunst. Transversale Linien der Sorge). Shortly after the centennial edition of Maska’s journal, they developed both a journal issue – as well as a series of other events and debates in the months that followed – around the notion of Yugofuturism. Drawing parallels between the potentials and traumas of past and present, and linking to notions of futuring of the Global South, they propose the use of multiple temporalities to challenge the present and create hope for the future. In this discussion, we reflect on the challenges of taking over such a long-standing institution and legacy, the importance of care in cultural work, and some perspectives on Yugofuturism.
