We decided to use the first issue of the journal to explain the interdisciplinary and collective nature of IMGjournal: in fact, we asked the members of the scientific committee and the associated editors to voluntarily submit a text, synthetic or extended at their discretion, that would present a disciplinary or personal point of view on issues related to the focus of the journal, proposing experiences in both basic and applied research.
Scholars of visual and graphic science, visual communication, education, psychology – with incursions into art history, semiotics or aesthetics – present in this Issue 01 a multiplicity of points of view that all, however, focus on the core concern of the magazine: images, what they are, how they are conceived, how they are produced, how they are perceived. Ultimately, we believe that the heterogeneity of the first Issue is one of the aspects that qualifies the project positively, as a collective project. Issue 01 is thus configured as an actual Manifesto.
A collective Manifesto.
