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...

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...

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...

“Rejuvenation and immortality are going to comprise the defining technological imaginary of our time.This will also constitute the ultimate political question: Will biotechnology lead to perpetual youth and longevity for the rich elite, or to an immortality for all? Everything is pointing to...

“Supercommunity traverses every experience, every struggle. It gives voice to art as it does to social critique, to the critique of science in the same way as the syndicalism of the old and new labour-power, to the struggle of artists as precarious workers and the precarious workers as...

Cosmism emerged in Russia before the October Revolution and developed through the 1920s and 1930s; like Marxism and the European avant-garde, two other movements that shared this intellectual moment, Russian Cosmism rejected the contemplative for the transformative, aiming to create not merely...

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...

Jalal Toufic

What Was I Thinking? is an initiation into thinking. With a mind that is extremely analytical and yet extremely capable of rendering all kinds of knowledge and experiences permeable to each other, Jalal Toufic creates here a “summa,” but an open-ended one. He looks into the arts as if...

Benjamin H. Bratton

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...

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,...

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 field of design has radically expanded. As a practice, design is no longer limited to the world of material objects but rather extends from carefully crafted individual styles and online identities to the surrounding galaxies of personal devices, new materials, interfaces, networks,...

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...

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...

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...

In this conversation at e-flux, Pelin Tan and Keller Easterling will discuss how to approach infrastructure spaces and their territorial affects, through case studies from the Southeast borderlines of Turkey to the Pearl River Delta in China.

What is the most appropriate question to ask a thinker? Is it not: “What were you thinking?” (the title of one of my previous books). What is a common response to a thinker’s answer to that question? Is it not: “What were you thinking?”—an exclamation echoed at times by his or her own “What was I thinking?” Yes, it is not only (rare) others who ask a thinker, “What were you thinking?”; it is also the thinker who asks himself or herself, “What was I thinking?” (someone who never asks himself or herself this question is not a thinker).

Vertiginous Variations on Vertigo composes a variant of Hitchcock’s Vertigo in which, among other things, Scottie’s drive for reenactment and repetition is not satisfied once he has made Judy look exactly like the beloved he lost, Madeleine.

What is the medium of thought today? If the post-Kantian critique of technology saw in the means of thinking (from writing to cinema) the promise of an anti-metaphysical image of thought, how can the critique of the digital address the medium of thought beyond the sheer instrumentality of mindless networks of decision-making?
Wednesday, February 14, 2018, 7pm
Written as a wake-up call to the field of media studies, The Message is Murder analyzes the violence bound up in the everyday functions of digital media. At its core is the concept of 'computational capital' – the idea that capitalism itself is a computer, turning qualities into quantities, and that the rise of digital culture and technologies under capitalism should be seen as an extension of capitalism's bloody logic.

The earliest essays in Midnight were written in the 1980s while Molly Nesbit was teaching in New York at Columbia University. There she met Hilton Als, Yasmin Ramirez, and Ann Reynolds, all of whom would take their art history forward in their own ways. The evening at e-flux will bring them back together to talk over their sense of the possibilities now. Non-art historians are warmly invited.

Is it possible to decolonize Western methodologies? Theory is struggling to find new words, tools, methodological frames, and grammar to overcome the colonial nature of our epistemology. How could we relate this debate to the contemporary art museum context?

In the year 2017, we dwell in a spiral of decomposition. Visual stimulations proliferate. Recording devices are hidden in every niche of planet Earth. We can see everything, therefore we see nothing. We can know everything, therefore we know nothing. Is ignorance strength? Join us at e-flux for the New York premiere of Andrea Gropplero's Comunismo Futuro, a vertiginous journey through and out of contemporary chaos narrated by Franco “Bifo” Berardi.

In a lecture drawn from the concluding section of his book Black Performance on the Outskirts of the Left (2017), Malik Gaines traces a legacy of radical performance tactics, rooted in the movements and aesthetics of the 1960s, as it figures in contemporary works featured in the 2015 Venice Biennial.

Within the framework of the exhibition ARE WE HUMAN? The Design of the Species: 2 seconds, 2 days, 2 years, 200 years, 200,000 years at Princeton University School of Architecture, Beatriz Colomina, Mark Wigley, and e-flux Architecture are proud to present Cosmism, a Superhumanity symposium, featuring Robert Bird, Maria Chehonadskih, Beatriz Colomina, Boris Groys, Nikolaus Hirsch, Marina Simakova, Anton Vidokle, Mark Wigley, and Arseny Zhilyaev.

From the perspective of computational speed, the human capacity to read an image – across the many layers of time-zones, climates, addressees, countries, generations, and languages – is terribly slow. We humans will fail hilariously in the race to seek cognition. Yet, in the navigational landscape, slowness has many speeds. As a point of entry, this lecture will speculate about the ‘slow image’ as a tool for analyzing image-regimes emerging from navigational or ramified processes.

Recent developments in biotechnology, genetics, and artificial intelligence suggest that the ancient myths of eternal youth, immortality, and material resurrection are now a tangible horizon of the technological imagination. At the same time, a century of dreams for travel in cosmic space and life on other planets have coalesced into a new transcendental realm—infinite in size, yet located in the material world, which itself has radically expanded. What are the politics and aesthetics of life in this new world? With Boris Groys, Hito Steyerl, Anton Vidokle, Arseny Zhilyaev, and Ksenia Nouril.

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.
