   critique | kritik | crítica

   To the extent that it does not withdraw to the balconies of academic
   theory or the bunkers of art criticism, critique is not simply a
   practice of judging. The meanings of critique, developed over the
   course of centuries, as a faculty of distinction, a critical attitude,
   or as a practical critical activity are assuming new forms today: as
   atopical critique, embodied critique, affirmative critique,
   criticality. The texts of the current transversal issue seek to update
   this kind of constant renewal of critique on the basis of shifted or
   newly invented concepts and exemplary experiences.
