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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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,...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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

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.
Monday, April 24, 2017, 7pm
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.
Wednesday, April 12, 2017, 7pm
The lecture takes a future perspective: from the year 2030 Sternfeld looks back as a curator to the years 2013-2023.
Friday, April 7, 2017, 7pm
This lecture will describe with notes and images a film that will connect the backyard of a home in Harare, Zimbabwe, the Atomic-Age graveyard in the Tri-Cities in Central Washington, and the collision of black holes predicted by Einstein.
Wednesday, April 5, 2017, 7pm
The step-by-step mobilization and militarization of labor and culture since the first five-year plan found its truth in the Second World War. But this truth was sometimes subversive and even destructive for the imaginarium of socialist realism: it appeared in the form of suppressed modernist tendencies, which returned in disruptions of the established anti-modernist system of representations.
Friday, March 31, 2017, 7pm
A near-future love story set against the fears and wonders of an impending drone age.
Wednesday, March 29, 2017, 7pm
Jean-Marie Straub and Daniàle Huillet's adaptation of Arnold Schoenberg's opera Moses und Aron (Moses and Aaron), shot in 1974 and dedicated to Holger Meins, is a study on migration, exile, and on being a stranger or alien.
Saturday, March 25, 2017, 6pm
Written as the neoliberal era was morphing into the Trumpocene, the book Cultural Revolution: Aesthetic Practice after Autonomy examines forms of aesthetic practice beyond residually modern(ist) notions of artistic autonomy; practices whose relevance may be more acute than ever in the current crisis, in which strategies and tactics are in urgent need of reexamination.
Monday, March 20, 2017, 7pm
Franco Berardi discusses current affairs and proposes answers to the question: Is there a way out?
Saturday, March 18, 2017, 6pm
Lind will explore notions such as "weak resistance," "contact and conflict zones," and "redistributive politics" while keeping art center stage in the lecture.
Wednesday, March 8, 2017, 7pm
Delving into meme engineering, operant conditioning, and other claimed 'brainwashing' techniques, this lyrical lecture will tussle with the question of how deviance is normalized.

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.
