HAMSTER Issue 5
This issue of HAMSTER Magazine takes the form of an expanded publication incorporating residencies, writers, workshops, collaborations, performances, and the texts that emerge from these collisions of bodies to flesh out the politics and potentials of relationships in writing. We are enunciating these relationships, and making visible the performed and contingent ways in which ideas and writing are achieved in relational space.
HAMSTER 5 has come together from the work of four writers assembling extended texts, and three residency artists that joined us in Ōtautahi to work on projects which fed and led to the written and visual contributions assembled for the magazine.
