As in previous editions, the writing and art in Versal 7 is resolutely international, and above all distinctive for its lack of defined borders. Its contributors hail from around the world, and many of them identify with multiple cultures and aesthetics. Numerous countries are represented, but what stands out is that Versal as whole continues to represent translocal intersections and cross-cultural artistic dialogues.
