Digital technology has interfered in all the spheres, private, public and professional, of our society and shaped them. Artists have always used the techniques or technologies of their time to express themselves. To each appropriated innovation thus corresponds a range of works. Yet, it takes time for the art world to integrate new practices and new media. Impatient, the most fervent advocates of digital art have structured themselves into international communities by organizing dedicated events. Their practices have now matured and the public is culturally ready to welcome their creations as it already does in festivals. At the same time, ...

The museum of contemporary art might be the most advanced recording device ever invented. It is a place for the storage of historical grievances and the memory of forgotten artistic experiments, social projects, or errant futures. But in late nineteenth and early twentieth-century Russia, this recording device was undertaken by artists and thinkers as a site for experimentation. Arseny Zhilyaev’s Avant-Garde Museology presents essays documenting the wildly encompassing progressivism of this period by figures such as Nikolai Fedorov, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Kazimir Malevich, Alexander Bogdanov, and others—many which are translated from the Russian for the first time. Here the urgent question is: ...

The e-publication Decolonising Archives aims to show how archives bear testimony to what was, even more so than collections. Archives present documents that allow one to understand what happened and in which order. Today Internet technology, combined with rapid moves made on the geopolitical chessboard, make archives a contested site of affirmation, recognition and denial. As such, it is of great importance to be aware of processes of colonialisation and decolonisation taking place as new technology can both be used to affirm existing hegemonic colonial relationships or break them open.

PublisherDroste Effect2017
On Monday, November 16th 2015, I take the subway to Hoboken from the 14th street PATH station. There, I buy a copy of the New York Times and a ham sandwich with a bottle of water. I also carry with me a printed-out-from-the-internet copy of a text written by Robert Smithson in 1967. Next, I go to the automatic ticket machine and buy a one-way Bus 85 ticket to Passaic (including a change for Bus 190) and a one-way train ticket to come back. I am early, so I sit down and open the Times. After futilely trying to glance at the art ...

James R. Southard has been working with small community groups in the hopes of building collaborative digital photo and video projects. Each series has been catered to the issues and concerns of each region through documenting local habits, patterns, rituals, language, history, and so on. This most recent year, James has started to turn the lens around towards himself. He has started to alter this regional material gathering technique into a biographical survey of his late father’s experiences in the 1970s. The resulting work has been a digital collage of still and moving images along with life action shots, building ...

Beyond performative resistance and melancholic complicity with the existing order, a crucial strategy emerged in the 1980s from a collective of artists in Yugoslavia who used complicity as its most lethal weapon. Inke Arns and Slavoj Žižek have respectively described the activities of NSK (Neue Slowenische Kunst) and its sub-groupings (the band Laibach and the artist collective IRWIN, and Scipion Našice Sisters Theatre, among others) variously in terms of over-identification or subversive affirmation, as performing the “hidden reverse” of state ideology. From Laibach’s nationalism in drag to the issuing of a passport for an imagined “NSK state,” NSK is perhaps ...

Art has something to teach Marxism about the reasons for its great historical failure to understand nationalism, because art proceeds with the understanding that the materiality of representation is not the same thing as the materiality of production. If it were, if the value-process were reducible to the labor-process, or vice versa, then both art and inflation would be impossible. ..

PublisherBerkeley Art Museum1980
A scan of the original type-written exhibition pamphlet accompanying Scott Burton’s 1980 performance at the University of California, Berkeley Art Museum of “Individual Behavior Tableaux” with an essay by the curator Michael Auping. Auping describes the performance, part of Burton’s “Behavior Tableaux” series, in which a single lanky naked male performer (Kent Hines) wears platform shoes and moves in slow motion with a chaise longue designed by Burton. The audience had to sit extremely close together 80 feet away from the the slow moving and silent performance, as Burton was as interested in what happened in the performance as he ...

It Was a Time of Conversation is an archive and research project. It revisits the story of three exhibitions that took place in the first half of the 1990s in Turkey: Elli Numara: Anı Bellek II [Number Fifty: Memory/Recollection II], GAR [Railway Station] and Küreselleşme–Devlet, Sefalet, Şiddet [Globalization–State, Misery, Violence]. In 2012, SALT visualized the research in the form of an exhibition at SALT Galata in the Open Archive. This was followed by a more developed presentation of the exhibition at SALT Ulus in 2013. This publication, prepared in parallel with the exhibition, brings together texts by Ali Akay, Selim Birsel, Burak ...

In the early years of the 21st century, Europe seems uncertainly placed between a deep sense of its own historical importance and anxiety about where it may go in the future. The European project, which for many of our institutions was a guiding principle, has run aground on the rocks of neo-liberalism and an economic priority that forgot about society’s politi- cal and cultural dimensions. The national project, on which the foundations of our museums (along with most of Europe’s other cultural institutions) were based, retains little of its 19th century ambitions to progressive, democratic thinking. As a result, cultural ...

home school, run by manuel arturo abreu and Victoria Anne Reis is a free art school based in Portland, OR. Streaming from various venues, classrooms, and art institutions, the school works across starkly divergent formal conventions and professionalisms to create critical and entertaining lectures and works of performance amongst a broader curriculum of exhibitions and events. In this lecture from abreu’s 2018 class on “non-art”, one of many equally interesting documents from home school, abreu lays the groundwork for a critique of art from a variety of positions, screening Hamishi Farah’s 2014 video Marginal Aesthetics, and abreu’s own video essay, ...

The story of this publication goes back to a much earlier idea, that of preparing a booklet on Gülsün Karamustafa’s artistic practice in the context of the 3rd International Istanbul Biennial. The scope of the text, written by Deniz Şengel, was developed in 1992-1993 in collaboration with the artist. However, this work, prepared with meticulous attention to detail, was never published in book form. The project was revived for A Promised Exhibition held at SALT in 2013-2014, and the book has now been transformed into an e-publication that remains faithful to the structure prepared many years ago by Şengel, who passed away ...

The Richard Mutt Case is created from the three-dimensional boxes that have the MT Grotesque letters printed on their sides. These boxes primarily study the physical space each letter occupies. The three different versions of this new typeface replaces the bold, italic, and regular of MT Grotesque. Each of these new versions captures the boxes from different angles and studies how much a letter can change when looked from different vantage points. The physical boxes, themselves, can also be used to typeset information. The consideration of new perspectives is what makes this typeface a tribute to the French artist Marcel ...

Twice a year since 2011, The Serving Library has assembled a set of individual ”bulletins” on a common theme, made PDFs available to download for free at www.servinglibrary.org, and simultaneously published them in print as Bulletins of The Serving Library. Last fall we started to turn on a yearly cycle instead, uploading the new batch of files throughout September, and releasing a half-as-frequent-and-twice-as-big print edition in collaboration with Amsterdam-based Roma Publications. This year’s Annual is guest-edited by Italian novelist and translator Vincenzo Latronico and explores how *translation* is fast becoming a significant site for the negotiation of identities and power dynamics ...

“Teaching Philosophy” Many university search committees ask for the applicant’s “teaching philosophy” in announcements of academic vacancies. They must be using the term “philosophy” flippantly and sloppily, since very few people (Plato [The Republic, etc.], Nietzsche [in his texts on breeding, etc.] …) have ever had a teaching philosophy. From: Diamanda Galás Sent: March 31, 2006 12:52:21 AM To: jtoufic@hotmail.com Hello, Many years ago a book was found by me in my study and I had no idea how it got there. I then observed a dedication. Throughout the years I have perused it and this year I began to leave it out on ...

Paul Cézanne was a French artist who painted landscapes, bowls of fruit, and stoves, and whose work laid the foundations for painting in particular and visual arts in general in the 20th century. Cézanne bridged Impressionism with Cubism and other styles that sought to manifest the subjective quality of perception and time embodied in objective experiences of seeing reality as such. Wht was Cézanne? uses the spirit of Cézanne as a departure point to express, through layered texts and images, what concrete experiences of seeing reality today look and feel like. There is not a single image of Cézanne’s work, ...
