ART PAPERS 40.03 - May/June 2016

Regular price $10.00 Sale

Humans relate to water as beneficiaries of it and as threats to itm but not as its masters; countless maxims and cliches attest to the element's perceived purity and inherent contradictions. Running through this issue of ART PAPERS, however, is not a discussion of water’s endangerment (drought, lead poisoning), or its dangerous new distribution (storms, flash floods), but of the force it exerts on culture, geopolitics, and global economies.
