This summer issue is titled DISPLACEMENT. In thinking about all the declinations the word can have with respect to a humanity increasingly in crisis, more than any other we have highlighted the disconnection from our corporeality as human beings and a widening gaze, from the bios (human) toward new zoo/geo/technological subjectivities, that has set in motion other categories of actors and complex networks of affective relations.
The cover stories in this issue are dedicated to Tishan Hsu and Louisa Gagliardi. Both worldviews present a restlessness: Gagliardi's resulting from a sense of dissatisfaction or unhappiness, and Hsu's from an attempt to read "what is happening internally in this new interface we increasingly inhabit, between the body and technology." Throughout the issue, we offer a neo-materialist view of life that rejects any form of undifferentiated and flat ontology, choosing to relocate anthropomorphic subjects by subtracting them from any pretense toward exceptionality.

Flash Art is an international quarterly magazine and publishing platform dedicated to thinking about contemporary art, exploring the evolving cultural landscape through the work of leading artists, writers, curators and others. One of Europe's oldest art magazines, Flash Art was founded in Rome in 1967, before relocating to Milan in 1971, and was originally bilingual, published in both Italian and English. In 1978 two separate editions were launched: Flash Art International and Flash Art Italia. Today the magazine remains one of the most recognizable and widely read publications of its kind, and is distributed in 87 countries.
