Boris Groys

If all things in the world can be considered as sources of aesthetic experience, then art no longer holds a privileged position. Rather, art comes between the subject and the world, and any aesthetic discourse used to legitimize art must also necessarily serve to undermine it. Following his...

Let’s be clear about something: it is infuriating that most interesting artists are perfectly capable of functioning in at least two or three professions that are, unlike art, respected by society in terms of compensation and general usefulness. When the flexibility, certainty, and freedom...

The internet does not exist. Maybe it did exist only a short time ago, but now it only remains as a blur, a cloud, a friend, a deadline, a redirect, or a 404. If it ever existed, we couldn’t see it. Because it has no shape. It has no face, just this name that describes everything and nothing...

Since Conceptualism, the field of art has become increasingly accustomed to playing host to its own critique, and recent decades have seen institutions engaged in self-critique as if by mandate. Important notions of legibility, autonomy, and critical engagement that were once necessary to...

Martha Rosler

What makes a city successful today? Over the past few decades, artists—and more broadly, clusters of creative people—have become central to narratives of urban revitalization and civic growth in cities around the world.

In many locales, artists in search of cheap rent constitute the...

Equal parts Borges, Burroughs, Baudrillard, and Black Ops, Dispute Plan to Prevent Future Luxury Constitution charts a treacherous landscape filled with paranoid master plans, failed schemes, and dubious histories.

Benjamin H. Bratton’s kaleidoscopic theory-fiction links the utopian...

It is often said that we no longer have an addressee for our political demands. But that’s not true. We have each other.
What we can no longer get from the state, the party, the union, the boss, we ask for from one another. And we provide.

Let’s see how need and care and...

Hito Steyerl

In Hito Steyerl’s writing we begin to see how, even if the hopes and desires for coherent collective political projects have been displaced onto images and screens, it is precisely here that we must look frankly at the technology that seals them in. The Wretched of the Screen collects a number...

Arseny Zhilyaev

Avant-Garde Museology is the first title in e-flux classics, a new book series focusing on an emerging historical canon specific to an era when the world’s many eccentric modernities, economies of knowledge, and shared political histories seek to be recognized through contemporary...

This book began as a two-part issue of e-flux journal devoted to the question: What is contemporary art? First, and most obviously: why is this question not asked? That is to say, why do we simply leave it to hover in the shadow of attempts at critical summation in the grand...

Beyond the view that multiple, globally dispersed conceptual art practices provide a heterogeneity of cultural references, Andrei Monastyrski and Collective Actions propose much more: other dimensions altogether, other spatiotemporal politics, other timescales, other understandings of matter,...

Jalal Toufic

“Jalal Toufic is a thinker whose influence in the Beirut artistic community over the past two decades has been immense—notwithstanding that, as he put it, many, if not all of his books, most of which were published by Forthcoming Books, ‘continue to be forthcoming even after their...

e-flux organizes and presents an ongoing public program of talks, screenings, and exhibitions.

A reading of Amílcar Cabral’s agronomic writings exposes the substrata of a syntax for liberation later performed in guerrilla language and struggle. It is a timely reminder in troubled times, a commoning of the humble — reclaiming soil as a rhizosphere rich in animated beings and inscriptions of oppression.
Wednesday, June 21, 2017, 7pm
Ariel Goldberg will give a lecture on when newspapers appear in photographs and when artists appear in the news.
Wednesday, June 14, 2017, 7pm
This talk revives two seemingly superseded critical traditions (twentieth-century ideology theory and nineteenth-century feminist poetics) and finds there models for thinking action in the present.
Saturday, June 3, 2017, 6pm
Quaestiones Perversas—an obscene form of the Graduate Record Examination—aims to gum the data production and collection of standardized testing as well as question the ideological underpinnings behind it.
Wednesday, May 24, 2017, 7pm
Journalist and author Masha Gessen discusses ways of surviving an autocracy. Rule #1? Believe the autocrat.
Monday, May 22, 2017, 7pm
Truth, abducted, is being held prisoner in the tower of falsehood, from whose high windows she calls out to be freed: so depicts Thomas Le Myésier in 1321.
Friday, May 19, 2017, 7pm
This lecture considers modern romantic love as a prototype of automation associated with capitalist reproduction.
Wednesday, May 17, 2017, 7pm
At a time when public space is rapidly dissolving into private property and attention is dissolving into the monetized distraction of streaming content in solitude, this cinema activates the possibilities offered through networked technology and opens the domestic up to what could be called anybody.
Monday, May 8, 2017, 7pm
With Sandi Hilal, Reinhold Martin, Alessandro Petti, and Nikolaus Hirsch.
Friday, May 5, 2017, 7pm
How does the left move forward today? Where do we find resources not just for hope or survival but advance and revolution?
Saturday, April 29, 2017, 6pm
With a detour through Allan McCollum's The Shapes Project (2005-ongoing), this lecture goes looking for the things that may be hiding in the folds of our renewed fascination with human extinction.
Wednesday, April 26, 2017, 7pm
Vivian Ziherl will join the chorus of those seeking some kind of way out of here, in discussion with Elizabeth A. Povinelli.

Promising aesthetic redemption for crumbling post-communist cityscapes and culture, the technocrats of European capitals as dissimilar as Berlin and Zagreb have one thing in common: The lust for neoliberal upsizing.
Friday, April 21, 2017, 7pm
In a world esteeming technological efficiency and control, glitches and errors are avoided at great cost. When such unintelligible artifacts do appear, they are quickly removed, banished from visual imagery and the domains of official, mediated experience.
Wednesday, April 19, 2017, 7pm
In an era when real estate developers preach the power of art to change society, and when innovative capitalist design has come to be called art, one has to appreciate—and perhaps foster a healthy suspicion of—just how far art has come.

In 2001, e-flux initiated a program of online projects that gradually evolved into a traveling series of experimental exhibitions. Some of these projects are now dormant and archived here, while others remain ongoing.

Time/Bank is a platform where groups and individuals can pool and trade time and skills, bypassing money as a measure of value. Time/Bank is based on the premise that everyone in the field of culture has something to contribute and that it is possible to develop and sustain an alternative...
