This year’s theme ‘Emergency’ is a contemporary idea primarily borne out by sudden medicalised ruptures to the human body, severe political fractures to the body politic of society, and everyday breaks as a means to temporally attend to matters with a sense of immediacy and urgency. These ritualised signifiers form the basis on which one can help ascertain the current station of contemporary society.
