SYROS: A bet on the potentiality of cooperation

MASKA, Vol. XXX, nos.  169–171 (Spring–Summer 2015 )

 

On the Potentiality of Our Collaboration

For more than a year, the Maska Institute team have been debating the possibilities and modes of a gradual transition to new or at least different modes of production; a greater cohesion between our publishing, production and education activities; and a conversion or even the merging of fields that are now organisationally separate, yet, to a great extent, already connected; we are also (say)dreaming about the so-called “art institute”, which would enable in-depth, curated (art) research, which could also result in performances, lectures, monographs and collections of essays, special issues of our journal, (self-)educational seminars, symposia etc.; about work, in which one would follow from the other, produce cross-fertilisation and, with time, bring about new qualities of discourse in all fields of our operation. All our conversations and visions remain (and exist as) potentialities, for now, yet, at the same time, as a sort of commitment to an uncertain future.

In a way, the summer meeting of eight authors, artists of different vocations and profiles, on the Greek island of Syros was an example of such collaboration. Hence, the members of Maska’s editorial board accepted with interest the proposal made by Danae Theodoridou, Efrosini Protopapa and Konstantina Georgelou to publish the results of this meeting as a special thematic section of our journal and share it with readers. Today is here.

Maska was founded in 1920 by the Ljubljana sub-committee of the Association of Theatre Players of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (Udruženje gledaliških igralcev Kraljevine SHS). In 1985, the Association of Cultural Organisations of Slovenia (Zveza kulturnih organizacij Slovenije) revived this publication under the title of Maske. In 1991, its original name was restored and its co-founder – Institutum Studiorum Humanitatis – reinstated. 

Chief and/or executive editors thus far: Rade Pregarc (1920–21), Peter Božič & Tone Peršak (1985–90), Maja Breznik (1991–93), Irena Štaudohar (1993–98), Janez Janša (1998–2006), Katja Praznik (2007–2009) & Maja Murnik (2011).
