The Kakania anthology


Kakania: an anthology is a groundbreaking collection of brand new works from 40 amazing artists and poets, that features poetry, portraiture, woodcuts, conceptual texts, photography, graphic design and a multitude of arts and artists. http://www.theenemiesproject.com/kakania

Kakania is a project which explores the legacy of the Habsburg era through decidedly contemporary, original works of text and art which attempt to be as complex and genre testing as the works, and the people, they are responsive to. This is a project where the past, and our understanding of it, is not be refracted through historical analysis, but the creative process, and one that is utterly contemporary.
