    ELECTRA Magazine Issue 10 (Work) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. Work, and the future of work, are the topics covered in the dossier of the tenth issue of Electra magazine. This dossier approaches the subject through very diverse perspectives, and includes contributions by André Barata, Yann Moulier-Boutang, António Guerreiro, Helen Hester, José Nuno Matos, Jason Read and Nick Srnicek.

    This edition’s “In the First Person” includes the publication of two interviews: one with Carlo Ginzburg, in which the renowned Italian historian recalls his intellectual trajectory and what made him one of the most important names in contemporary historiography, and one with Philippe Sands, one of the seminal figures in international law, who speaks to us about the contemporary world, its afflictions and threats, the legal actions against climate change and the changes brought about by the covid-19 pandemic.

    Electra 10’s “Portfolio”, under the title Unseen Teen, is made up of pictures of the “invisible” youth in the USA by Alec Soth, one of the greatest North American photographers of our time. The photographer and his work are introduced by critic and curator Sérgio Mah.

    ELECTRA Magazine is an international publication on contemporary culture that reflects on our world and our time, often looking at what is hidden or implied in them. It relies on collaborations from the most renowned authors based in various parts of the world, who bring their diverse experiences and cultural fields to each of the topics covered in the magazine with critical and creative insight. This magazine is meant to be read and seen, because it is as discerning with its images as it is with its words.

    Content

    In this tenth issue of Electra, psychoanalysis historian, researcher and former Freud Museum director Michael Molnar outlines a profile of Edward L. Bernays, known as the “father of public relations”, of the manipulation of the masses and the inventor of marketing and modern propaganda; neuroscientist Sebastian Dieguez discusses an excerpt from the novel The Plague, by Albert Camus; philosopher and professor Viriato Soromenho Marques approaches the concept of “sustainability”; sociologist Alessandro Dal Lago, an Italian from the North of Italy who moved to Palermo, paints a portrait of this baroque city, where nonetheless many historical eras overlap; Yves Michaud, philosopher and art critic, and Salvatore Settis, art historian and archaeologist, discuss the question of restitution of art works to their places of origin.

    Under the section “Register”, art historian Nicola Hille interprets the gesture made by former chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany Willy Brandt, when he visited the Warsaw ghetto and kneeled and laid a wreath in memory of the Jews murdered during World War II. The Book of Hours, by Serbian theatre director Jelena Bogovac, is a diary, written from Belgrade, at a time when the pandemic has taken over everything.
