Table of Contents: Re-recorded Histories
This issue of Rampike features artists and writers who take a second look at the past, while re-situating and re-conceptualizing recorded histories of events, records, and personal encounters. They provide reinscriptions of ancient and contemporary myths, educational texts, cultural events, biographies of artists and writers, accounts of medical procedures, engagements with indigenous cultures, and even reconsiderations of the conventions of art itself including photography, poetics, and narratology. The mind’s eye re-envisions what once was, and re-situates it within the present. The result is an unresolved dialogical discourse that engages the audience in evaluating the original event phenomenon through the artist’s reconceptualization.
