ON COMMUNITIES

How are Eastern European communities bringing themselves together during the unsettled times of our own contemporaneity? What makes the people from this geographical region truly Eastern European? How have Eastern European communities managed to survive the unsettled times provoked by war, turmoil, social unrest, and exodus toward the more prosperous West? How do Eastern Europeans tackle the issue of constantly being outsiders? Or, what (and how) do Eastern Europeans love? How do Eastern Europeans respond to their cities crumbling and shrinking?

ON UTOPIAS

In the case of Eastern Europe, it is the very fluid history of the region that makes it the perfect site for critically delving into its troubled relationship with the notion of utopia. That is why, especially here, we must continue to juxtapose the current desolate order with a well-established ideal. Focusing on revolts and rebels, on insurgency and visionaries, on the speculative and idealistic, the second issue of Kajet Journal seeks to decipher and resurface utopian alternatives. We ultimately need to replace the excessive sentiments of powerlessness and disorientation with a new futurology of the East. We need to proclaim the end of the end of history, to reclaim the future, and to start building. Eventually, we end up asking ourselves: Is there room for utopia after utopia?

ON STRUGGLE

This issue of Kajet seeks to reclaim a lost space in times of anxiety and provide an organised structure of support, becoming an instrument of solidarity between peripheries, between marginals that share a synchronous struggle. The Eastern European struggle is not that of catching up with the West or regaining foothold, but that of maintaining life. For this, we need to lay the foundations for a future-oriented experimental internationalism, one that bridges theory and practice in order to conceive a world beyond capital, one that is led through indignation, solidarity, persistence, and systematic planning. So, dear reader, rise in anger and stand firm in solidarity!
