Infrastructure, Autumn 2020
The Infrastructure issue, Autumn 2020 from TANK Magazine
The pandemic has completely transformed our perspective on the workings of the
world. Deserted office blocks in cities across the world, food and medication shortages and the momentary death of next day delivery mark the dramatic interruption of the global order. In this issue of TANK, we shine a light on the central and changing nature of infrastructures: we interview writer and professor Laleh Khalili who unearths the colonial underpinnings of global shipping networks; writer and critic Nora N. Khan deconstructs the clarifying and mystifying properties of language and Vincent Bevins traces the history of anticommunist infrastructure.
