COLLAPSE is an unprecedented conjuncture of work by leading practitioners in diverse fields. Conceived as a carefully-compiled, compendious miscellany, grimoire or as an instruction manual without referent, as a delirious carnival of sobriety, COLLAPSE operates its war against good sense not through romantic flight but through the formal insanity secreted in the depths of the rational (‘the rational is not reasonable’).

It aims to force unforeseen conjunctions, singular correspondences, and cross-fertilisations; to diagram abstract sensations as yet unnamed.

The journal COLLAPSE exists as the explosive, perhaps fragmentary, product of the passion for thought, unrestrained by any thematic or formal constraint, any justificatory relation to any agency whatsoever.
