Well having mentioned n+1 in a post a couple of days ago, I want to mention the new issue of yet another terrific albeit even more fledgling (is there such a thing a more fledgling?) literary, political, cultural journal called A PUBLIC SPACE which has just put out its third issue. Not only does the newest number contain a new ly translated poem by Wisława Szymborska ("The Old Professor") and a very brief essay by David Levi Strauss ("A Wolf That Knows Enought to Keep Its Distance"), but also a "portfolio" of fiction and photographs intended to offer a view of the recent history of violence and politics in Peru. The portfolio includes work by Daniel Alarcón, Juan Manuel Chavez, Santiago Roncagliolo, Miguel Gutierrez. It also includes a sampling of photographs from the Archivo Fotogràfico TAFOS/PUCP at the Catholic University of Peru, School of Science & Communication Arts. The archive houses a collection of images generated by students in a project conducted from 1986 to 1998 that taught photography to workers and the poor so that they could document their experiences.
