Weekly Roundup - 1/09/23

This week: From the Rest issue, Bench Ansfield returns the term “burnout” to its origins in the social science of urban crisis. Plus, Peter Cole’s poem “As:.”

From the newsletter, Alex Kane reports on how civil society groups are working to expedite the International Criminal Court’s investigation of war crimes in Israel/Palestine. And art historian Stanislaw Webel talks with artist Evgeniy Fiks and curator Maria Veits about the Yiddishland Pavilion, their guerrilla project at this year’s Venice Biennale, which explored anti-nationalist politics via diasporic artistic traditions.
