SALT. is gearing up for its eighth issue, titled (and themed) ‘Noli Me Tangere’ or “touch me not”, with a call for submissions that is open until December 20.
The contemporary London-based feminist magazine, established by four Goldsmiths Fine Art students in 2012, has already published a series of mini manifestos—with themes like ‘Anti-Work’, ‘Salirophilia’, ‘Pageantry’ and ‘Manifesto’—in what has become an ongoing research project.
Issue 8, ‘Noli Me Tangere’, is the Latin version of the original Greek expression ‘me mou aptou’ (translating to ‘do not cling to me’, ‘do not hold onto me’, ‘ do not approach me’) and are the words that jesus says to Mary Magdelene in John 20:17. The issue’s theme thus becomes that of touch and tactility, among other things.
