»What is formalism? The countless facets of such a notion keep us inquiring into its nature and possible manifestations. One may assume it is about conception or examination through aesthetic composition, whereas shape and structure — overall technical features — prioritise the medium over content and context. However, since the outset, we’ve been arguing and reflecting on what could represent a meaningful compendium of images and texts under the name of formalism. […] In the grey area between form and meaning, we further this inquiry with the hope of collecting and supplying significant points of view.«
