Cura. #40 – Manifesto

 - Cura. #40
CURA. celebrates its 40th issue with a special collector's edition featuring a collection of over one hundred contributions expressly created by artists, writers, thinkers, and philosophers who have collaborated over the years with CURA.'s editorial and curatorial platform, since its founding in 2009.
Through a multifaceted anthology of visual and textual statements, CURA. Manifesto thus intends to highlight the most compelling themes of the contemporary art debate, in a broad and varied overview of contributions which have shaped the profile and identity of the magazine to date. Thanks to the contribution of an Editorial Board including Adriana Blidaru, Michael Connor, Martha Kirszenbaum, and Anthony Huberman, CURA. Manifesto thus celebrates an important milestone in the history of the magazine.
The issue, designed by Dan Solbach and featuring an iconic graphic cover, translates the point of arrival and the transition to a subsequent phase in the life of the magazine, with a restyling taking place in autumn 2023.
