The Future of

Kajet 01—On Communities (PDF)

Developed, designed, and printed in Bucharest, Romania, KAJET seeks to be more than just a mere signal from the periphery and to move beyond a purely understanding of Eastern Europe. Concentrating the scope of interest onto the past, present, and future of communities inside Eastern Europe, you can find what lies at the heart of our first issue: a rejuvenation of the contemporary imaginations of what the notion of community used to mean, currently means, and will continue to mean. 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?
