There is no identity without difference. But the unsettling feeling of being a stranger to yourself often gives rise to the question – what do we give up when estrangement becomes a fundamental condition for identification? »Gemini – The Journal« is a collection of conversations, close readings, videos, listening pieces, and stories that share a suspicion toward a wholesome understanding of identity.
