The street is as usual – a stage for a clash between extreme forces capable of bringing about general passivity and frustration in a whole society. Well-situated middle class families and intellectuals strolling around, self-assured they really know how this world goes round – oh you can’t tell them anything new, they know what is going on in literature, in music, in theatre, in arts – oh they know everything, just everything. Yet what they do not know is that their understanding of literature, music, theatre and the arts has nothing to do with what is going on outside, outside ...

Code: Survey was developed for the Morphosis-designed Caltrans District VII Headquarters in downtown Los Angeles as an architectural and digital installation. Whereas the building houses a grid of 168 glass panels of images related to transportation, each panel engraved with an alphanumeric code, the website is its searchable counterpart of photographs, codes and an index of keywords. Images, texts, film footage and audio from interviews with Caltrans employees as well as native Californians intermingle in Green’s website as a dynamic archive that undermines and complicates our expectation of searching any form of place. Code: Survey exists as a process allowing temporary imaginary inhabitation ...

In this text, Maite Garbayo-Maeztu seeks to think some of the first performances taking place in the 1970s in Spain, along with occupations of the street by feminist activism at the time. Artists like Dorothèe Selz, Fina Miralles, Àngels Ribé and Olga L. Pijoan would use veils, occultations and alterations that invited viewers to go beyond visuality.

This month in e-flux journal, we are pleased to present a special issue focusing on Moscow Conceptualism, guest-edited by Boris Groys in conjunction with an exhibition of the work of Andrei Monastyrski and Collective Actions, curated by Groys and on view at e-flux until January 6, 2012. The essays in the issue take the works and activities of the Moscow Conceptualists—among whom Monastyrski was a central figure—as a departure point for interrogating not only the specific concerns of a small group of advanced artists working in relative obscurity in the Soviet Union of the 1970s, but also how the modest artistic ...

It’s been a rough news week. Between Thursday’s testimonies of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh before the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Kavanaugh’s near appointment to the Supreme Court Friday, many of us are exhausted. We would like a win for women. Sometimes the quickest way to achieve that is to do it yourself. As such, this episode of Explain Me celebrates women who have made waves in the world of art and activism, through a series of interviews with four major figures—Mia Pearlman (Make NY True Blue), Jenny Dubnau (ASAP), Nancy Kleaver (PARADE), and Mira Schor (Selected writing). In the first half of ...

The projects highlight the challenges of progressive ideas within society. A temporary installation welcomes the visitors at the entrance of the Sverre Fehn Pavillion and also invites the audience to visit a public art project at Tåsenløkka in Oslo. The two parts are linked conceptually as both circle around concepts like social conditioning, urban planning and architecture. The public project articulates the fence that separates a public park and a municipal kindergarten. It zigzags through manicured bushes and landscaping, inspiring the children to explore. The result is an equal trade of land, without changing the total size of each property.
