Ayin’s columns offer a platform for contributing editors to curate work inspired by and engaging with a particular theme or form. Our first column, Speaking from Experience, is an exploration of the fringes and potential futures of Jewish spirituality, curated by journalist Madison Margolin. Our second column, Teiku, is a space for bold and creative engagements with Jewish texts and practices, edited by Shaul Magid. Our third column Moabet, edited by Devin Naar, is dedicated to Sepharadim “past, present, and future.”
A folio is a small collection of works related by theme, medium, or process. Folios can be the work of a single author/artist, or a collective effort of multiple contributors. Not too short, not too long. Like a chapbook for the internet.
The Ayin Journal features work from leading-edge artists and scholars from all over the world: poetry, essays, animation, music, performance, photography, interviews, translations, theory, fiction, mixed-media work, and more. The first issue of the Ayin Journal (2021) drew inspiration from the radical possibility of dreams and sleep. The second issue (2022) delved into the liberatory figure of the Holy Fool.
