Cured Quail Vol 1

Cured Quail Vol 1

A new publishing project of critical theory, 2018

More details


Cured Quail is a new journal of critical theory that takes seriously the aesthetic, social and conceptual problems of illiteracy. However, illiteracy is not meant here in the customary sense of simply being unable to read or write. Rather, Cured Quail poses the question of illiteracy as that which hinders fully experiencing the words on a page, the patience required by an idea, or the particulars expressed by a work of art. For this, Cured Quail's essential starting point is to presume that the journal is unlikely to be read. This presumption is also the journal’s line of inquiry: how and under what social circumstances has the practice of reading collapsed? We contend that the compulsions of inattention pervade society as a whole and emaciate cultural experience. Cured Quail is concerned with discussions on culture, philosophy, political economy and modern and contemporary art, featuring critical essays, reviews, polemics, interviews, and other formats.
