We are in the process of writing the first short-collection of OTTN essays pivoting on the interrelation between the complexity of western social systems and the active role of contemporary culture, seen here both as a tool to navigate through the present and a mean to acknowledge one's inner and outer chaos.

Essay n. 1 will investigate the work methodology of our team and focus on different aspects of our approach, such as work sustainability, communicating culture on social media, questioning the imaginary as a track for thoughts, and disavowing the idea of an audience.

While writing our thesis, we decided to share with you the bibliography we are currently reading. Hopefully, you will find the following sources as important as we do and if you wish to comment or add any, please do so via email at
