Review: The first issue of Prelom (Break) magazine reexamines current relationship between politics and theory and it has been initiated with the aim to intensify, rather, revive activities on local theoretical and art scene engrossed in academism and enjoyment of its own autism, hermeticism and isolationism. Prelom sprang up from the School for History and Theory of Images (CCAb), one of the rare loci of opposition to such worrying tendencies, and each issue will have as its foundation contributions by the students of the School (essays, translations, reviews) and the transcripts of especially interesting lectures. The material is grouped into two main thematic units - Ideology & its discontents, and Reading the Image. The guest unit in this issue is Psycho<>Politics, with the newest translations of four Slavoj Žižek's texts. The policy of the journal is based on supporting young authors and development of critical thought in the face of all hegemonic artistic and intellectual practices. Also, Prelom will introduce the work of chosen young Yugoslav artist in each issue (in issue No.1 the special gift is original artwork by Žolt Kovač).
