“ABSTRACTION”
March 2008 / Issue No. 69
In cooperation with Sven Lütticken

www.textezurkunst.de

Investigating “Abstraction” both as visible form and as hidden social structure, both in artistic practices and in the increasingly “culturalized” economy in general, the contributions gathered in this issue attempt to go beyond established critical and art-historical parameters by exploring and exploiting — rather than negating — the specifics of modern and contemporary art production, distribution and reception.

Plus reviews from New York, Berlin, Paris, Vienna, London, Zurich, Baden-Baden and Düsseldorf

Exclusive new artists’ editions:
Rachel Harrison, Jörg Sasse
