The second issue of Ronald Wimberly’s annual art tabloid on identity and visual culture, LAAB MAGAZINE (LAAB numbering is non-sequential.) LAAB #4: THIS WAS YOUR LIFE! concerns themes of death and environmental devastation, horror, hauntology, necropolitics, and the anthropocene. We ask what it means to die, and what it means to live — and what might have to die for a future to be born.
