Darkness is the theme of this issue of the Lulu Journal – Darkness as it relates not only to the recession of light in the evenings, or from the north in the winter, but to the sentiments that thrive there; states of being that seem to us, for good or bad, to have been born from the darkness.

The issue is introduced by an Ode to Robyn’s Honey by Kristian Vistrup Madsen. ”Robyn knows the vastness of forests”, he writes, ”she understands just how cold and remote things can get.” From there, it includes many premiers.

A selection from cult writer Hubert Fichte’s interviews with Hamburg sex workers in the late 1960s has been selected and translated for the first time into English by Malte Fabian Rauch.
Anne Nymås of Jokkmokk has contributed one of her pornographic short stories from the collection ”Sex and the Sapmi” (2018) – the first of its kind to be published in a Sami language.

Commissioned especially for Lulu, poems and illustrations by Alex Turgeon probe domestic architecture, heteronormativity and gay loneliness. ”Failure, Abandon, Decay, Ruin” – repeat. In an excerpt from Josefine Klougart’s novel New Forest, appearing in fresh English and Swedish translations, love withers and sex hurts against the backdrop of horses thundering through gloomy Danish countryside.

Finally, Vishal K Dar talks about the light installation he made for the Luleå Biennial: ”Mea, a intern at Gallery Syster, told me about her father’s reaction to the barge site: ”I saw the lights late one evening and thought that the lights were search lights looking for someone that had gone through the ice – an ice skater, perhaps”.

Lulu is the Luleå Biennial’s journal, made by the biennial’s artistic directors and invited guest editors. It is published on the biennial’s website and can be downloaded for printing. Design: Aron Kullander-Östling & Stina Löfgren. www.luleabiennial.se

With this release it is announced that Asrin Haidari and Emily Fahlén will continue their role as artistic directors for the Luleå Biennial, with the Lulu-Journal continuing to be published in the time leading up to the next biennial: autumn 2020.
