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 section, there is an interview with historian François Hartog, who undertakes an important reflection on key aspects of historiography and about the different ways to experience time which define each era; Bernd Stiegler, a media theorist and historian, approaches photography as a cultural asset and emphasizes the importance of preserving our photography legacy; historian Enzo Traverso describes a transition that defined the end of the 20th century: the replacement of utopias with the cult of memory; Maria Filomena Molder reflects on the question of the power of memory and mnemotechnic tools. These written pieces are illustrated with images by Gerhard Richter, a reference name in contemporary art, and the cover image is also his work.
    • This edition presents a portfolio by Lebanese-American artist Walid Raad, whose work is charged with anthropological, philosophical, social, aesthetic and psychological meanings, and in which war is very much present, both in cause and effect; this issue also publishes a diary by the reputed Brazilian writer, essayist and professor, Silviano Santiago, in which moments from his everyday life are interspersed with the tense political and cultural life in Brazil; and Moroccan writer Abdellah Taïa is interviewed by António Guerreiro.
    • “Scoop” is a new section in Electra whose purpose is to reveal authors’ unpublished, original work. In this edition, Indian photographer, painter and director Sarah Singh presents, in both words and images, her next film.
    • Also, the founder and editor of Art Press magazine Catherine Millet provocatively comments on a quote by Louis Aragon; the city of Havana is revisited by Cuban writer and journalist Carlos Manuel Álvarez and by the frames of Agnès Varda; and Cristina Fernandes presents her take on Pedro Costa’s latest film, Vitalina Varela.
