There are of course many overlapping interests amongst the group, be it content that is often reflective of this moment—the systems and institutions that shape our society and reinforce inequity, identity position and personal history, environmental precarity and the relationship between humans and the non-human natural world, or disorienting and uncanny investigations of architecture and private space—or formal inquiries into abstraction, materials and artistic histories, amongst many myriad and overlapping others.
