|The VASA VJIC staff welcomes you to our open, online, and free VASA Journal on Images and Culture (VJIC).
VJIC publishes thematic threads and visual discourses by invited authors. Each author is provided a platform to express their ideas and knowledge on specific topics.
Theme issues provide the space for a curator/author to build through image and text an inquiry into a specific topic or area.

(Editor’s note: Dialogs may appear in various forms and formats. Key to understanding the journal’s use of the term “dialog” is to understand it as a conversation, an exchange of sorts between the the author and the reader/viewer. A conversation between “you” and your experience. Meaning is not always clear and obvious, that is the point. Conversations between “you’ and “you” are complex, if you listen.)
