A Resource for Performing Artists, Scholars and Audiences.
The first issue of Maska in 2012 is partly a heritage of the last year's Editorial Board presided by Maja Murnik but under the new Board it already indicates the subjects addressed to consolidate the journal as the central platform for integration of reflections and research in the field of contemporary performing arts in Slovenia.
The new double issue brings two new columns: Love and Sovereignty focused on the current topics of cultural policy, their reflection and ambitious answers and solution whilst Maska's Hexagram will feature discussions on the selected topic; this time we addressed the work of expert commissions at the former Ministry of Culture and municipalities. Two shorter theory sections – The Body, The Gaze, The Touch and Immaterial Extensions of the Material – provide theoretical contributions and interpretations of selected theatrical phenomena and/or phenomena of theatricality. The journal ends with the analysis of the performance Cheap Lecture by Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion held in Ljubljana in March.
