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...

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,...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

Twenty-five years ago, the promise of the first "smart war" was launched: Technologically advanced, machine-driven, and presented to the public via blockbuster press conferences and satellite imagery.
Friday, February 24, 2017, 7pm
Refugee camps are considered to be—by definition—temporary spaces. They are designed to be dismantled, abandoned. Their conflict for being meant to be quickly resolved. Yet there are some Palestinian refugee camps that are now almost 70 years old; the conflict, seemingly permanent.

The lecture starts from mapping a variety of philosophical materialisms to raise the question of possibilities for a philosophy of nature today.

Sylvère Lotringer's earlier films are first-hand explorations of sex, crime, and death in New York City. They are also an investigation of poet, writer, and dramatist Antonin Artaud’s life and legacy.

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.
