Issue Two: Kin

13.00

The earliest known root of the word KIN is in a verb: to produce. What has often been meant by this is issue, offspring, child—but what does it mean when kinship extends beyond the reproductive? The term chosen family also has a popular currency, particularly in queer circles. What do these different forms of relating produce materially? Affectually? How does kinship stretch across national and linguistic borders? What happens at the limits of kinship and what are the consequences for those who find themselves outside of those limits? How do we portray our kin, and our affinity with them, in maps made of lines or language?
