Upcoming e-flux books titles include: 

One Number Is Worth One Word by Luis Camnitzer
Forthcoming from Sternberg Press

Working across such mediums as printmaking, sculpture, language, and installations, Camnitzer’s work investigates how power is exercised and can be challenged in society. An influential teacher, over the six decades covered by this volume, he has interrogated the power structures inherent to the practice of art at the same time as he explores its liberating potential. Many of these texts are published for the first time. The book offers a singularly authoritative—yet also anti-authoritative—gathering of a life’s work in art, education and activism.

Practicing the Good: Desire and Boredom in Soviet Socialism by Keti Chukhrov
Forthcoming from the University of Minnesota Press

By means of the philosophical and politico-economical consideration of Soviet socialism of the 1960s and 1970s, this book manages to reveal the hidden desire for capitalism in contemporaneous anticapitalist discourse and theory. The research is marked by a broad cross-disciplinary approach based on political economy, philosophy, art theory, and cultural theory. 

Art and Cosmotechnics by Yuk Hui
Forthcoming from the University of Minnesota Press

Art and Cosmotechnics addresses the challenge of technology to the existence of art and traditional thought, especially in light of current discourses on artificial intelligence and robotics. Thinking art and cosmotechnics together is an attempt to look into the varieties of experiences of art and to ask what these experiences might contribute to the rethinking of technology today.
