In a way, the pandemic also functions as a large-scale social experiment designed to identify the limits of living together: How close is too close, and how much distance is absolutely necessary? In times of increasing divisions and ever-widening differences, how can we achieve a peaceful and constructive relationship between those who hold divergent perspectives or convictions? In the light of these dynamics, the authors of Magazine #36 "Cohabitation" (published spring/summer 2021) examine forms of cohabitation which have received little thought or (had previously) seemed hopeless.

The scholars, philosophers and artists investigate cohabitations between humans and nature, humans and artificial intelligence and different cultures of remembrance. In so doing, they delve into the conditions of successful cohabitation – and examine the frequently invoked, yet somewhat dubious power of empathy.
