This online library exhibition celebrates the magnificent diversity of languages that advance research, teaching, and learning at the University of California, Berkeley. It is the point of embarkation for an exciting sequential exhibit that will build on one post per week, showcasing an array of digitized works in the original language chosen by those who work with these languages on a daily basis — librarians, professors, lecturers, staff, and students. Many of these early-published works are now in the public domain and are open to the world to read and share without restriction.

Winner of the 2015 London Book Fair's International Literary Translation Initiative Award, Asymptote is the premier site for world literature in translation. The journal takes its name from the dotted line on a graph that a mathematical function may tend toward, but never reach. Similarly, a translated text may never fully replicate the effect of the original; it is its own creative act.

Different kinds of revolution involving social, cultural, economic, ecological and personal identity question and challenge us. These changes must be accompanied by mechanisms that ensure respect for the human rights of each individual, including individual rights of queer, bisexual, transgender and intersex persons. These changes, however, will not occur without representation and active presence in all fields, especially in those of knowledge and exchange of experiences and projects, which is what concerns us at Faber.

<![CDATA["Catalonia In Venice_To Lose Your Head (Idols)": Collateral Event of the 58th International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia]]>Arts. Venice, Italy, 24/11/2019
For the 6th time, the Institut Ramon Llull presents a Collateral Event for the Biennale Arte. Pedro Azara curates the exhibition Catalonia in Venice_To Lose Your Head (Idols). The multi-authored exhibition explores the theory of art reception and documents the complex life of public statues in our time. In a world of images, where iconoclasm, iconodulia and the transformation of aesthetic and are ways for reality and power to relate to each other, the exhibition questions the fetishism of images as living entities and encourages conversations as a way to foster human happiness, awareness and freedom.
