Minor Threat: Branden W. Joseph on desire and terror in the art of Cameron Jamie:

“If Jamie is a ‘backyard anthropologist,’ his backyard in some sense remains the San Fernando Valley, where he grew up—which he calls ‘horrible,’ ‘a very small and dead world.’” 
—Branden W. Joseph

Richard Tuttle unveils a portfolio of his work and textiles, alongside the artist’s own account of the working process for his major installation in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall and a retrospective survey at the Whitechapel Gallery, both debuting in London this month.

Beau Rutland on the collaborative work of Gaylen Gerber:

“Gerber’s ‘cooperative’ practice can be seen as an act of either generosity or megalomania.” 
—Beau Rutland

Neïl Beloufa pens 1000 words about his current show, “Counting on People”:

“I wanted to be the interface, to be their iPhone, to play their robot.”
—Neïl Beloufa

Tom McCarthy and Simon Critchley present the International Necronautical Society‘s “Declaration on Digital Capitalism”:

“What we see in literature and art is the description and celebration of psychical disintegration. We are dividuals, divided against ourselves, at war with ourselves, undoing ourselves, endlessly inauthentic.”
—The International Necronautical Society

Daniel Birnbaum surveys Lygia Clark‘s MoMA retrospective:

“Clark’s therapeutic workshops were too expansive in their emancipatory ambitions to be defined as art. Instead, they belong to the tradition of healing. But from what, exactly, were her participant-patients suffering?” 
—Daniel Birnbaum

Julian Rose talks with pioneering structural engineer and designer Cecil Balmond:

“Data is a raw material for me, and I think it’s probably the most important new material we have today.” 
—Cecil Balmond
