e-flux journal was invited to participate in All The World’s Futures—the 56th International Art Exhibition: La Biennale di Venezia. For their contribution they created a single issue of the journal spanning four months from May to August, with one piece of writing released each day. Each text was archived on this website.

The theme is an umbrella for several sub-themes developed by Julieta Aranda, Brian Kuan Wood, and Anton Vidokle in collaboration with a number of guest editors including Raqs Media Collective, Natasha Ginwala, Pedro Neves Marques, Boris Groys, Tom Holert, and Coco Fusco.

Departing from the journal‘s usual essayistic format, the Supercommunity issue includes poetry, short fiction, plays and screenplays, as well as other epistolary forms by nearly one hundred authors. Remco van Bladel art-directed the (nearly daily) publications that were printed in an abbreviated form as a billboard poster as well as the project website that published the texts in full. The logotype playfully visualizes the ever changing configuration of the Supercommunity.
