Norma Elzoghbi – Nostalgic Futures

with Julia Born, Alice Savoie

This magazine aims to deconstruct, reinterpret and question Eastern and Western narratives through two distinct lenses: the West in the eyes of the East and the East in the eyes of the West. In a globalised and multi-cultural world, understanding identity disputes has become a crucial issue to end patterns of cross-border misrepresentations. It challenges the notion of “the other”, by documenting past, current and speculative future conflicts. Rather than persuading people, it conveys news from a two-sided narrative, acting as a cross-cultural bridging mechanism. It features a network of international contributors: writers, photographers and researchers. This project showcases my identity as an Lebanese/American, who belongs neither here nor there.
