The theme for the main section of Focas #5 emerges from the current global political context and the refractions thereof. The title is an ironic reference to George W. Bush's "second front" in the war on terror, but also Art as a "second front" of representational struggle. Rather than respond to this unavoidable context head-on, and risk reproducing or fetishising the violence of the Real in discursive form, these essays interrogate in a more tangential and oblique manner sites of Art, Religiosity and Violence.
