I am very happy to officially announced that, after several months of dedicated collaborative work, The Funambulist is now ready to take the next step and to become a bimestrial printed and digital magazine. The blog and the podcast (Archipelago) will remain operative, and my full-time job will now consist in being the editor of this new magazine, which I hope you will enjoy and support. The first issue is dedicated to militarized cities and include great articles and projects from the Funambulist’s old (Nora Akawi, Mohamed Elshahed, Sadia Shirazi, Demilit, Philippe Theophanidis, and James Martin) and newer collaborators (Mona Fawaz, Mona Harb, Ahmad Gharbieh, Zulaikha Ayub, Ylan Vo, and Maeve Elder).
