Across the pages of this issue of Flash Art, there are three words that resonate throughout: coexistence, identity, and protest. While codes to define new standards of identity are being rewritten, populist authorities still distrust the idea of a diversified coexistence of individuals, inciting resistance in physical and digital realms and spreading confusion about who or what to follow or unfollow. This issue invites readers to pay attention to the stereotypes that infect our gaze.
