Crossing Boarders, Shifting Boundaries Image, Body and Territory In the first number of our scopio Sophia magazine, we published three major essays that challenged our understanding and spread new light on several Walter Benjamin’s concepts on photography and art, at the same time we were continuously defied to think about established categories namely those of photography as document, archive, critical witness, or even as critique in itself. In the upcoming number, we would like to push further and go beyond these notions perceiving how they are critically inscribed in the works of art themselves. We are especially interested in unfolding the processes of thought present in photographic, filmic, or other works engaged with image and image making, that explore the notions of Body and Territory or use them as their own expressive matters. Body and Territory frequently appear intertwined, sometimes even suggesting metaphorical uses: the city as a body (in the multiple acceptations: political, social, cultural, etc.), the body as an experimental territory (on debates around issues of identity and gender, works involving artistic and aesthetic experimentations, works for anthropological documentation and recording), the landscape in the absence of the body, as Cézanne named it, establishing a direct link between the painted landscape (the image) and our sensitive perception. Our magazine is now accepting abstracts within these fundamental themes in order to unveil how an image, a photograph or a series, or a film critically and poetically build their own thought about the body and the territory, and, above all, how they contribute and appear engaged in architectural and/ or urban processes.

The objective is to challenge different artists and creators to publish in book format original articles, reviews and other texts of interest and value. We are interested in making Sophia a mentis instrumental capable of extending our critical knowledge and questioning the universe of image in innovative ways. The published set of theoretical and critical texts on image can either be taken from sections of scopio magazine, or from our International Conference On the Surface: Photography and Architecture, or submitted by new authors and other R&D national and international centers, through our call for abstract submissions. The title Crossing Borders, Shifting Boundaries defines the global theme for this present cycle of Sophia and conveys the interest in promoting a critical analysis around this theme, exploring how image is a medium that, on the one hand, can cross borders and shift boundaries between different subjects and disciplines where image and photography are present in a significant way and, on the other hand, in how image and photography can be used as critical instruments to better understand the real and its different realities, always questioning the universe of image in an innovative way. http://sophiajournal.net/ Editorial Organisation Editorial Coordinator Pedro Leão Neto (FAUP) Editors of Sophia 1st Number Susana Ventura Edward Dimendberg — Invited Editor Editors of Sophia 2nd Number Pedro Leão Neto Susana Ventura Iñaki Bergera — Invited Editor Editorial Assistant of Sophia 2nd Number Diana Carvalho Scientific and Editorial Commission (CEAU-FAUP) José Miguel Rodrigues Pedro Leão Neto Rui Ramos Susana Ventura Vítor Silva Reading Committee Álvaro Domingues (FAUP/ CEAU) Ana Francisca de Azevedo (DeGeoUM/Lab2PT) Andrew Higgot (AA Grad Dipl PhD) Carlos Machado (FAUP/ CEAU) Gabriela Vaz Pinheiro (FBAUP) Joana Cunha Leal (FCSH-UNL) Joaquim Moreno (FAUP/ CCRE) Jorge Figueira (FCT-UC) Marta Cruz (FAUP/ CEAU) Marco Iuliano (LSA/CAVA) Miguel Leal (FBAUP) Olívia da Silva (IPP – ESMAE) Pedro Bandeira (EAUM) Paulo Catrica (UNL) Teresa Ferreira (EAUM/ CEAU) Colaborators Diana Carvalho Maria Neto Creative Director Né Santelmo Translation Lisbeth Ferreira
