The third issue of Grafters’ Quarterly, Social Thing Person, revolves around the axis of fetishism, particularly binding together conceptions of the spiritual and commodity fetish. The term is traced through its varying usages and its now seemingly inherent prejudices - prejudices also present in Marx’s usage of ‘fetishism’ when expressing the power commodities hold over consumers (who in turn deny such bewitchment). Contributors to this issue have tackled the subject both by commenting upon and enacting within configurations of the powerful ‘social things’ in which they find themselves enmeshed.
