Document Journal #18 2021

For the 18th issue, produced as the external world began to open up, Document turned inward to explore desire: a theme that surfaced with existential questions and individual reflection during the shared experience of lockdown, providing us an opportunity to consider how we might be transformed in the pandemic’s aftermath. more

In Plato’s Symposium, Socrates suggested that a necessary component of desire is an absence — that we desire what we don’t, or can’t, possess. But this lack is also a generative force sparking reinvention and change; as humans, we are always seeking something bigger, a fantasy that drives everything from romantic pursuit to scientific innovation. From the need for human connection to the pursuit of knowledge, desire comes in many forms — but while its object may vary, the experience of desire is one we all share. With Alejandro Jodorowsky, Mickalene Thomas, Thelma Golden, Manfred Thierry Mugler, serpentwithfeet, Björk, Juergen Teller, Mario Sorrenti, Julia Fox, Debi Mazar, Willy Vanderperre, Peter Berlin, Brontez Purnell, Chris Kraus, Frédéric Malle, Michelle Zauner, and Donatien Grau—featuring robot artists, Thing Magazine, the quest for religious belief, the new summer of love, and over 520 pages of exploration on the subject of desire.
