“There’s nothing empowering about one part of you being visible when the rest of you is targeted, shamed and threatened.” — Jacob Thomas, Archer Magazine #11
Welcome to Archer Magazine issue #11: the GAZE issue.
"The notion of the GAZE goes beyond media. It encompasses how we make sense of our bodies through the way other people see us... It’s the way power expresses itself through imbalances in vision control: surveillance, objectification fetishisation, gaslighting, abuse. It’s the way a systemic problem can be minimised when those with influence sweep it under the rug." — Adolfo Aranjuez, editor-in-chief, Archer Magazine #11
"Intergenerational talk is so important, to remind people that where we’re at now is not where we’ve always been." — Peter Waples-Crowe, Archer Magazine #10
Welcome to Archer Magazine issue #10: the HISTORY issue.
"History goes beyond the sounds and sights memorialised in media and archives. In fact, it's just as much, if not more, about what we don’t see or hear or read about." —Adolfo Aranjuez, editor-in-chief, Archer Magazine
