This article has a theme of “Unlearning”, or the process of re-examining what one knows for purposes of self-examination. This includes a reading guide for the book because the journal is read right to left, instead of left to right, which ties in to the concept of unlearning. The articles discuss the concept of unlearning, from the perspective of unlearning art lessons, unlearning societal perspectives and unlearning history. The journal also includes art, poetry and reviews.
