Fungus 菌 (Issue 26) by Sine Theta Magazine
What does it mean to understand the world as infinitely changeable, the way a mushroom does? Might the fungus lead us to means of resistance and resilience, when there is so much operating against our survival? sinθ #26 “FUNGUS 菌" is a breeding ground of pieces that take up space between the cracks, creating networks with no beginning or end, eating the surface it holds together. The theme of this issue—inspired by Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing’s The Mushroom at the End of the World: On the Possibility of Life in Capitalist Ruins—takes the fungus as a site of possibility: for considering human–mushroom entanglements, for diasporic formations and futures, for the potentialities for rebirth and regeneration. Our publication is a collaborative project made possible by our staff, contributors, and interviewees, composed of Sino individuals from around the world.
