The multidimensional readings are not restricted to the active apparatus of law and discipline, but instead seek to unravel the synchronies of our times—the mesh of injustice in our midst. The presentation of some fifty works is not necessarily categorically or linearly organized; rather, it appears completely free of hierarchy, with photographic styles, subjects, and techniques displayed on equal footing. First Things First emphasizes a juxtapositional approach, a dynamic and free arrangement of various subjects and styles. Through multiple exchanges between members of thirty-two Huni Kuin communities in Brazil, this publication brings together threads from anthropology, art, and science that are interwoven, like the movement of a serpent, with essay contributions, oral histories, drawings, and traditional song.

At the heart of this collection are three provocative texts extracted from important artworks by Rosen, offered here as genre-defying literature at the intersection between reality and fiction, speculative narrative and historical-political critique, humor and eroticism. Omar Berrada Ed. This publication is conceived as a parallel exhibition in book form, and contains original interventions by and in collaboration with the artists.

Armen Avanessian Overwrite Ethics of Knowledge—Poetics of Existence The original ideals of the Enlightenment research university and the rise of aesthetics in modernity have been decisive in shaping neoliberal capitalism. How, then, might we endeavor to change the academic status quo? Philosopher and political theorist Armen Avanessian argues that the ethical dimension of knowledge can produce a new reality. Looking beyond aesthetics and its critical imagination, can the speculative poetics of collaborative writing free us from the dominant regime of the academy and, by extension, the art world?

It examines the space of arrival as a complicated and disjointed nexus between departure, displacement, and return. In a present moment teeming with erosions—where even history and the human are called into question— Cultural Revolution: Aesthetic Practice after Autonomy reconsiders these changing values, for relegating such notions safely to the past betrays their possibilities for potential today.

Minouk Lim United Paradox What role does historiography play in the formation of the present? How does contemporary experience inform the commemoration of historical events or lack thereof? Minouk Lim explores history in the present tense—its media representation, collective memory, ritual, and trauma—through her exhibition, publication, and broadcasting station United Paradox. The collaboration is structured around Maiwar Performance, in which the CityCat ferries that ply the Brisbane River Maiwar execute unannounced maneuvers near a site of significance to the Aboriginal people who lived on the lands around Brisbane before British colonization in the early nineteenth century.

Helke Bayrle Portikus Under Construction, — In , Helke Bayrle began videotaping the installation of each exhibition at the Portikus exhibition space. These videos form a remarkable and intimate archive of the storied Frankfurt contemporary art institution and the exceptional artists and personnel that have worked within it. The Flood of Rights It is difficult to imagine making claims for human rights without using images. For better or worse, images of protest, evidence, and assertion are the lingua franca of struggles for justice today.

And they seem to come in a flood, more and more, day and night. But through which channels does the torrent pass? The Flood of Rights examines the pathways through which these images and ideas circulate—routes that do not merely enable, but actually shape human-rights claims and their conceptual background. Taken together the works are a collection and an archive of time shown in modern images, raising questions on how we contemplate ideas of nature.

Categories such as living ceramics, food advice, ghostology, synesthesia, and transformation are woven throughout the book, giving unique insight into the ideas and imagination that are part of the work itself. Luca Lo Pinto Ed. Marcus Verhagen Flows and Counterflows Globalisation in Contemporary Art Over the past quarter century, artists have made powerful interventions in debates around globalisation, addressing various dimensions of cross-border exchange, from mass migration to the dynamics of translation, and devising new ways of conceptualising them.

At least not without magic. And a touch of trickery. Robert Stadler, Alexis Vaillant Eds. Devised largely in response to the gradual breakdown of the divide between art and design that began over a century ago, this book sheds light on the ways that the concept of the thing as idea has been considered over time. However, at the last minute the project was censored by the Chinese Cultural Bureau, turning what was to be an investigation of libraries and the institutional sharing of culture into an intimate reflection on power and censorship, political art, and the historical experiences shared across formerly divided Germany and the two Koreas.

Joanna Warsza Ed. The ideological, economic, or ethically objectionable circumstances of certain biennials and art exhibitions have raised the question of whether to continue and, if so, under what circumstances, with what consequences, and to what ends? From to , biennials in Istanbul, St.

The contributions also look across and beyond the field of media art, staking out new paths for understanding and working in the transversal territories between theory, technology, and art. Jesse Birch Ed. Black Diamond Dust This publication expands a multisite contemporary art exhibition that took place in Nanaimo, British Columbia, a small city on the eastern edge of Vancouver Island.

The title refers to coal mining, an industry that has formed and fragmented communities through economic development, racial segregation, and labor inequity, while fueling the modern world. In this book, forgotten or under-acknowledged histories are investigated and discussed along with cultural forms that surround the practices of international coal mining. Contemporary artworks, poetry, essays, literature, folk songs, and archival images come together to extract meaning from this fossilized black carbon that continues to power our cities.

CATPC brings together a unique gathering of individuals—along with its members and partner institutions that are engaged in dialogue with it—and attempts to rethink postcolonial power relations within the global art world.

Look Inside

EP Vol. Practitioners and theorists explore this strategy by pushing the debate into both speculative and real-fictitious terrains. Newly commissioned interviews, artist projects, and essays shed light on topics such as parafiction and algorithmic ambiguity. It is the first volume in a series of books that focuses on what is happening both inside and outside of the art institute. Cultures of the Curatorial 3 Hospitality: Hosting Relations in Exhibitions A curatorial situation is always one of hospitality.

This publication analyzes the curatorial within the current sociopolitical context, through key topics concerning immigration, conditions along borders, and accommodations for refugees. The contributions in this volume, by international curators, artists, critics, and theoreticians, deal with conditions of decontextualization and displacement, encounters between the local and the foreign, as well as the satisfaction of basic human needs.

The artist situates his paintings in complex interrelationships, where connections and relevancies are constantly reconfigured, forming a continuously growing web. Lydia Okumura Situations For almost fifty years, Lydia Okumura has explored the realm of geometric abstraction. She challenges our perception of space through sculptures, installations, and works on paper that blur distinctions between dimensions. Spaces of Commoning Artistic Research and the Utopia of the Everyday Spaces of Commoning: Artistic Research and the Utopia of the Everyday is the outcome of a research project pursued by a group of artists, architects, and social theorists.

In the face of an exhilarating politics of accumulation and dispossession, the group explores commoning as the subject as well as the means of its study. This has been a key undercurrent to a practice that spans painting, sculpture, video, and installation. Following the lure of the fringes, the artist culls her imagery from fan-gore magazines, true-crime TV shows, fetish websites, obscure online forums, and hidden chat rooms tucked away in the darker reaches of the Web. Boris Groys Ed. Martin Herbert Tell Them I Said No This collection of essays by Martin Herbert considers various artists who have withdrawn from the art world or adopted an antagonistic position toward its mechanisms.

Providing a counterargument to this concept of self-marketing, Herbert examines the nature of retreat, whether in protest, as a deliberate conceptual act, or out of necessity. By illuminating these motives, Tell Them I Said No offers a unique perspective on where and how the needs of the artist and the needs of the art world diverge. Hannah Rickards Grey light Left and right back, high up, two small windows Grey light. Left and right back, high up, two small windows is a major new work by London-based artist Hannah Rickards commissioned by Fogo Island Arts.

Anthony Downey Ed. Future Imperfect Contemporary Art Practices and Cultural Institutions in the Middle East Future Imperfect critically examines the role played by cultural institutions in producing present-day and future contexts for the production, dissemination, and reception of contemporary art in the Middle East and North Africa. It offers historical contexts for discussions that have become increasingly urgent in recent years—the role of culture in a time of conflict and globalization—and an in-depth critique of the state of cultural institutions in an age of political upheaval, social unrest, exuberant cultural activity, ascendant neoliberal forms of privatization, social activism, and regional uncertainty.

Since , however, her main focus and passion has been painting. The title of this publication describes the main focus of her work: the still life. Texts by writers and artists and an interview with Du Pasquier provide an informative and subjective view of her artistic practice. The diversity of voices in this publication mirrors the complexity of the region itself: its various curatorial spaces, infrastructures, and political systems.

Welcome to Transciency Preis der Kunsthalle Wien Addressing possible configurations of art and nature, Margit Busch, recipient of the Kunsthalle Wien Prize , created a laboratory-cum-experiment that included mealworms and beetles that consume, and thus recycle, polystyrene plastic. Andrej Polukord The Sarcophagus Preis der Kunsthalle Wien Andrej Polukord, corecipient of the Kunsthalle Wien prize, draws on painting, installation, performance, and video art to create unpredictable environments and absurd situations that produce double meanings and ambiguity.

Polukord installed The Sarcophagus at Kunsthalle Wien, an environment that takes the form of a cave. In this installation mushrooms grow from the ceiling of the Kunsthalle, transforming the gallery into the space of an inverted forest floor. Hubs and Fictions On Current Art and Imported Remoteness Hubs and Fictions , originally a touring forum, invited international curators, writers, and producers to probe how fiction plays out in a globally distributed art-world ecology, and how infrastructures are invented against its background.

The book functions as a deliberately discontinuous reader; it juxtaposes documents, negotiations, and reflections from and on these conversations. Monica Ross Ethical Actions A Critical Fine Art Practice British artist Monica Ross — left behind forty years of socially engaged, feminist, and performative artwork, which has had a deep effect on contemporary art and society. Boris Groys Particular Cases This collection of essays does not aim to illustrate a prefabricated theory of art, but rather follows the impulses given by artworks themselves.

Philosopher and art critic Boris Groys writes about significant artists and artworks of the last century that have pushed his thinking and writing in a new direction. His striking and original arguments do not try to substitute the singular content or message of an artwork. Rather, the writings are inspired by art as a mind-changing practice—as if contemporary artists, completely secularized, can still produce a sort of conversion within the spectator. Jan Paul Evers, Leon Kahane, Jumana Manna ars viva The ars viva Prize has been awarded annually since to young artists living in Germany whose work stands out for its innovative potential and high artistic quality.

These objects consist of collapsible and modular furniture-like elements, as well as seemingly nonfunctional sculptures made of light materials Karina Mendreczky Preis der Kunsthalle Wien With delicate lyricism, Karina Mendreczky creates fictional landscapes using light and shadow. Silhouettes of acrylic trees, whose details were hand-carved with an etching needle, were projected onto the back wall of the gallery to create the impression of actual large-format drawings.

Signature Strengths The No-Frills book series was developed in the early s as a translation of the non-branding strategy of supermarket staples to mass-market genre fiction. An immediate response would be that contemporary art is an art of the present, that it somehow addresses and expresses the present. But what is this present? What constitutes the present present or the contemporary contemporary? This first book in the Contemporary Condition series introduces some of the key issues concerning contemporaneity as a defining condition of our historical present.

It thus acts as an extended preface to the series as a whole, calling for a rethinking of the deep structures of temporalization that render our present the way it is. This is approached through art and design practices that unfold this multiplicity of time, closely entwined with contemporary concerns in aesthetic theory, to understand and engage with the planetary time scales of slow environmental violence. Terry Smith The Contemporary Composition Can we speak of composition when we are in a state of unfathomable decomposition?

Art being made today defies coherent categorization, and the world presents itself, day after day, as spinning into confused chaos, structural disintegration, and violent disorder. Revising his well-known histories of contemporary art, Terry Smith argues that we must respond to the compelling need for coeval composition at a time defined by the contemporaneity of divisive difference.

This book traces how—despite many obstacles—visual artists across the globe are rising to this challenge. Listening is a political act, a pedagogical process, and an activity that can lead to the development of an organized protocol for engagement. In his art and research, Beirut-based artist Lawrence Abu Hamdan explores the perception of language, sound, and listening. National identity, human rights, and the administration of justice are recurrent themes in his work. The exhibition and publication are the first to present the work of Bennett since his death.

The works in the show tackle narratives from his own geographical region—Asia Pacific, in which his home country of Australia plays a colonial role—and weaves them into a bigger picture to take into account the global economy, resource extraction, and the ultimate power of the sun. Angela Bulloch, Maria Zerres Considering Dynamics and the Forms of Chaos This volume accompanies the eponymous exhibition at the Sharjah Art Museum—two parallel solo shows by Angela Bulloch and Maria Zerres brought together under one title, framed by the notion of entropy.

A key term that characterizes the movement toward chaos, entropy appears in a variety of fields such as physics, probability theory, sociology and information technology. Within contemporary art, entropy has emerged to refer to installations often associated with representations of order, disorder and information, and their homogeneity. Tirdad Zolghadr Traction Traction argues that contemporary art is defined by a moral economy of indeterminacy that allows curators and artists to imagine themselves on the other side of power. This self-positioning, in turn, leaves us politically bankrupt, intellectually stagnant, and aesthetically predictable.

In his memoir-polemic, curator and writer Tirdad Zolghadr candidly reflects on his own experiences and the work of others. Each person written about is represented by a letter, and when an object turns into a subject it is marked in bold. This book was written from the middle. The contents of these pages have been modified numerous times. Notes were taken, ideas were rewritten—the ones that survived bare the most essential guidelines and wisdom for life Shezad Dawood Kalimpong Kalimpong is an artist project in book form by the London-based artist Shezad Dawood.

There are explorers and spies, poets and travelers, lovers and strangers, princesses and humanoids, all strangely connected across the globe through this curious Indian town. David Harvey Abstract from the Concrete Marxist geographer David Harvey opened his lecture with a fact: between and China consumed 50 percent more cement than the United States had in the entire twentieth century. In Abstract from the Concrete , he asks why. They were frequently looted together with other valuables from Bosnian homes.

It was acquired at a public auction in It is missing volume number All over Europe, young people are occupying central public squares to demonstrate for more social justice. In Berlin, their agenda is different. The completists gathered at Alexanderplatz aspire for justice primarily on an intimate level. They believe that only when the redistribution of material wealth includes equal chances of finding sex and love—no matter how elderly, disabled, or ugly you are—communism will become real. Michalis Pichler Ed. Books and Ideas after Seth Siegelaub Books and Ideas after Seth Siegelaub spans an arc of tension between the works of Seth Siegelaub and contemporary cultural production.

It features an interview with Seth Siegelaub, two essays by Regine Ehleiter and Michalis Pichler, and an extensively illustrated catalogue with bibliographic details. Putting Rehearsals to the Test Practices of Rehearsal in Fine Arts, Film, Theater, Theory, and Politics Although the format of the rehearsal is used across a number of disciplines—film and theater as well as fine arts—it has been scarcely considered in historical and contemporary art discourses.

With this in mind, Putting Rehearsals to the Test investigates the role and function of the rehearsal as a methodology, modus operandi, medium, site of representation, and reflection on processes of artistic production. Samuel Bianchini, Emanuele Quinz Eds. How can it be analyzed, understood, theorized, experienced, and how can we conceive of works that possess the faculty of action and reaction to their environment and public?

The double-projection film installation is based on a script that borrows texts from American punk-poet Kathy Acker, as well as chats and materials by convicted whistle-blower Chelsea Manning that speak of her reasons for revealing nearly one million secret military and diplomatic documents through WikiLeaks, at the same time exposing her transgender identity to her superiors.

Through poetic gestures of appropriation and recombination, Boudry and Lorenz examine issues around gender, sexuality, the performance of identity, and the nature of collaboration.

Demos Decolonizing Nature Contemporary Art and the Politics of Ecology While ecology has received little systematic attention within art history, its visibility and significance has grown worldwide in relation to the pressing threats of climate change, global warming, and environmental destruction. The festival has continuously produced projects with international artists that experiment with various institutional frameworks. This book is both a question and a manual, collecting ideas, knowledge and experiences that stem from the theory and practices developed over the past few years.

Abraham Adams, Lou Cantor Eds. The first volume, Language and Misunderstanding , addresses concretism and its discontents. The essays and performance texts herein argue for an expanded consideration of concretism in contemporary practices oriented toward the embodiment of language, in works that challenge the privileging of the body of the word over the body of the artist.

James Voorhies Ed. What Ever Happened to New Institutionalism? New Institutionalism , a mode of curating that originated in Europe in the s, evolved from the legacy of international curator Harald Szeemann, the relational art advanced by French critic and theorist Nicolas Bourriaud, and other influential factors of the time. These approaches posed other possibilities and futures for institutions and exhibitions, challenging the consensual conception, production, and distribution of art. For the exhibition, two complementary yet autonomous artists were brought into dialogue with each other: German artist and computer composer Florian Hecker, and the late American sculptor John McCracken.

He treats his paintings as objects, often created through more or less laborious, serial, or deterministic processes where time itself, as well as various external factors, become active cocreators in the making of the work. Cave 1—Territories Cave is a series of publications featuring commissioned and republished explorations, anecdotes, research, documents, case studies, essays, and scenarios on how to think and practice contemporary collecting.

The first issue of Cave looks into the territory of the public collection considering it both a semantic ground for institutional collecting as well as political and cultural infrastructure. Featuring essays on the highs and lows of the conceptual turn in poetics, avant-garde literary genealogies, and monographic pieces on Paul B. Preciado, Chris Kraus, and Pierre Guyotat, among others, Brutalist Readings explores the radical histories of writing, as well as its potential now.

Ina Blom The Autobiography of Video The Life and Times of a Memory Technology In her innovative take on early video art, Ina Blom considers the widespread notion that video technology was endowed with lifelike memory and agency. She follows the reflexive unfolding of an analog technology that seemed to deploy artists and artistic frameworks in the creation of new technical and social realities. Olivia Plender Rise Early, Be Industrious As the first significant overview of the work by artist Olivia Plender, this monograph navigates through the evolving attitudes to historical and contemporary forms of communication and education that her research-based practice has explored for the last ten years.

The Archive as a Productive Space of Conflict The applied research project and publication The Archive as a Productive Space of Conflict deals with archival practice and its spatial repercussions.

Annette Gilbert Ed. Publishing as Artistic Practice What does it mean to publish today? In the face of a changing media landscape, institutional upheavals, and discursive shifts in the legal, artistic, and political fields, concepts of ownership, authorship, work, accessibility, and publicity are being renegotiated.

How the traditional publishing framework has been cast adrift, and which opportunities are surfacing in its stead, is discussed here by artists, publishers, and scholars through the examination of recent publishing concepts emerging from the experimental literature and art scene, where publishing is often part of an encompassing artistic practice. Developed over the past ten years of her practice, these works explore communication and interaction between individuals, often against the backdrop of a unique public location, in order to cast attention on repressed, incomplete, and unresolved histories.

Nav Haq Ed. Syntax and Society , the first volume, reflects on the exhibition premise that considered the structure and meaning of language and the role it plays in society, with a focus on the work of the three shortlisted artists, Dina Danish, Mahmoud Khaled, and Basir Mahmood while the second volume, Oh Shining Star Testify , focuses on the work of award-winning artist duo Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme.

It includes documentation of the eponymous exhibition at Rockbund Art Museum May 30—October 7, , along with detailed sketches of both existing and unrealized projects. Painting beyond Itself The Medium in the Post-medium Condition In response to recent developments in pictorial practice and critical discourse, Painting beyond Itself: The Medium in the Post-medium Condition seeks new ways to approach and historicize the question of the medium.

Reaching back to the earliest theoretical and institutional definitions of painting, this book—based on a conference at Harvard University in —focuses on the changing role of materiality in establishing painting as the privileged practice, discourse, and institution of modernity. Individual Stories Photographs, books, and knickknacks: artists collect a variety of objects. While artists generate personal collections, which often address different formal, aesthetic, or conceptual concerns, it is difficult to separate this activity from their artistic practices.

Over time, whether intended or not, such accumulations of items may become works of art. Individual Stories considers the collection as a portrait of its collector and also as an artistic method—as a process rather than an end result. This catalogue is a compilation of individual collections that could not be more different. Anchored in concerns that emerged in the late s and s, Welchman poses thoughtful and provocative questions about how these artists receive and negotiate the social and aesthetic histories through which they live and work.

Shahryar Nashat Obituary The subject of this book is a deceased prop, an object of a particular color, the green of cinematic trickery and special effects.

Ull Hohn Foregrounds, Distances Ull Hohn: Foregrounds, Distances aims not only to offer the first comprehensive overview of his work, but also to contribute to a history of painting-based practices, which occupy a marginal place in the established narratives of the art of the s and s Suzana Milevska Ed.

On Productive Shame, Reconciliation, and Agency On Productive Shame, Reconciliation, and Agency prompts a unique crossdisciplinary inquiry into the productive potential of the affect of shame. This book contests the ontological understanding of shame and the psychoanalytical interpretation of it based on personal traumatic experiences linked to lack, loss, memory repression, and absence. Both rely on all manner of doubles, models, gimmicks, ruses, prototypes, and shock-and-awe campaigns to realize their propagandas of the deed, threat, and image.

Blurring reality and delusion, they collaborate on a literally psychotic politics of architecture. Tom Burr Anthology: Writings — Since the late s, Tom Burr has been reusing appropriation strategies in his art. Not confined to his photographic and sculptural works, they also lend momentum to many of his writings.

The artist creates assemblages of personal writings and sources, differing in nature and style, which he has used as both conceptual and aesthetic materials. Thirty-seven texts—works, poems, autobiographical texts, and portraits—have been compiled for the first time in this publication. A collection of electronic works by Dexter Sinister produced from to Dexter Sinister is the compound name of Stuart Bailey and David Reinfurt, who operate at the intersection of graphic design, publishing, and contemporary art.

This is their conversation. Ingo Niermann Solution — Drill Nation Having furnished solutions for Germany and Dubai, Ingo Niermann takes a new look at what nationhood can mean and accomplish today, finding inspiration, of all places, in North Korea.

Eyal Weizman The Roundabout Revolutions Critical Spatial Practice 6 One common feature of the wave of recent revolutions and revolts around the world is not political but rather architectural: many erupted on inner-city roundabouts.

Sarah Entwistle Please send this book to my mother In Please send this book to my mother , artist Sarah Entwistle dismantles the traditional form of the architectural monograph and artist biography. In , the astounding personal effects of her grandfather, architect Clive Entwistle —76 , emerged from a Manhattan storeroom.

The year sees the seventieth anniversary of the liberation of Europe from Nazi totalitarianism. Only few witnesses of these past events are still alive at this time. Many events are known, many interpretations contested, but an encounter with contemporary art that focuses on historic sites in the landscape, and decides to interpret these sites differently, is unprecedented. Art in the Periphery of the Center Peripheries are profoundly ambiguous regions.

While trying to build a relationship with the center, the periphery often finds itself excluded both on a structural and actor-related level, no matter if the center-periphery model is defined in terms of space or along relations of power. The publication Art in the Periphery of the Center attempts to shift practices of thought toward both critical realism and new materialism.

At the end of the festival, the structure will be transported to Thailand and will be the first building block of a new workshop on the land.
