For this Autumn issue of HUB, we present a collection of works that results from the interest in broadening the understanding of Distance.

We shared questions with the authors based on the strategies and ways of visualizing distance in artistic practice. We asked, after all, how we can understand the aesthetics of Distance, including new narrative and visual devices, to reveal something inevitable or ineffable. What are the possibilities of the Distance between the real world and the imagined one? Can the Distance between them be measured?

The four essays in this edition arise from the field of experimentation, from the sensitive perception of everyday life, dissolving distances, often from collective and organized work, giving room for an interpretative arc over the Distance.
