Born in Marseille in 2019, Phylactère* is an editorial and multiform project. In its printed form, the journal transcribes performances with plural and subjective visions; giving voice to amateurs, artists, designers and thinkers alike. Phylactère focuses on the before and after of a performance, and gathers their multiple readings and forms such as transcriptions, scripts, protocols, drawings, poems, photographs, reports, — revealing the singularities of verbal forms through expressive typography and layout. Each contribution is designed differently according to its nature and peculiarities. Phylactère embodies a feminist approach: first by giving a voice to a diversity of person that are too often underrepresentend, and also by questioning the forms and limits of legitimate graphic practices. By mixing politics, collaboration and performance, the journal experiments and archives new inclusive imaginaries from an intersectional perspective.

Phylactère is also organising readings, performances and workshops that are then transcribed in the journal. By gathering a moving community, the journal becomes a meeting place: the point of intersection between an event and its published format. This porosity embodies our position, based on a desire to hybridise practices between artists, graphic designers, editors, "speech" directors and initiators of encounters.
