We are pleased to announce the publication of Afterall issue 19.

This issue of Afterall opens with a discussion between theorist Gerald Raunig and Dmitry Vilensky, member of the St Petersburg-based collective Chto delat?, about artists’ use of images and materials from popular culture, and about organisation and group dynamics in artistic and political practice. The following pages continue with an exploration of these two topics.

Group dynamics are key in Will Bradley and Dustin Ericksen’s essays, which look at The Red Krayola‘s constantly changing formations as a music group and its collaborations with artists and musicians. They are also present within Chon A. Noriega’s essay about the performances of Chicano artists’ collective Asco in Los Angeles in the 1970s, and Alexandra Heimes and Dieter Roelstraete’s texts on Kai Althoff‘s numerous, often co-authored projects. Popular culture and its transformation is discussed by Kerstin Stakemeier and Pablo Lafuente in relation to Hito Steyerl‘s films and videos, and by Claire Barliant and Doug Harvey through their essays on Jim Shaw‘s installations, paintings, sculptures and personal archive.

Issue 19 also includes an extended essay by Marina Vishmidt on the use of labour in the work of Allan Sekula, Mika Rottenberg and Yvonne Rainer. In addition, there is a text by Wouter Davidts on Imi Knoebel’s landmark installation Raum 19 (1968—ongoing) and Paul Elliman writes on gelitin’s recent publication Das Kakabet (2007).

We are also pleased to announce that from issue 19 the cover price of Afterall has been lowered. This discount has been made possible by the support received by individual and institutional funders and the steady increase in subscriptions and sales worldwide throughout the last 10 years.

Afterall journal is co-published by Central St Martins College of Art and Design, London and the School of Art at the California Institute of the Arts, Los Angeles, in association with MuHKA, Antwerp.

Issue 19 can be purchased in bookshops across the UK, Europe and America.
