e-flux in September

What do Berlin, Gwangju, Kassel, St. Louis, Ljubljana, and New York have in common in September?
Ok, this is a pretty lame attempt at a joke… nevertheless we are presenting many new projects, exhibitions, publications, talks, and lectures in all these cities.

We hope that you will join us at one or more of them!



Agency of Unrealized Projects (AUP)
On the occasion of the Berlin edition of AUP, and in collaboration with the Berliner Künstlerprogramm/ DAAD, the AUP will take up temporary residence at the daadgalerie from September 9th to October 20th, 2012 to present newly submitted projects as well as the existing inventory of the AUP archive. The daadgalerie installation of AUP will be accompanied by a public program of lectures and presentations with numerous guests considering artistic and philosophical perspectives of the “unrealized” or the “unrealizable.” AUP is a project by e-flux and the Serpentine Gallery London devised by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Julia Peyton-Jones, Julieta Aranda, and Anton Vidokle.

Kassel & Gwangju

Notes for a Time/Bank is an installation that comprises a video, an image archive, and the display of numerous listings containing offers and requests for various types of mutual assistance by the members of Time/Bank. Notes for a Time/Bank reflects on the historical, political, and anthropological conditions that make alternative economies such as time banking necessary. The ten chapters of the video component include original footage shot at historic utopian communities in America. The materials and documents collected in the course of the last 3 years of working on Time/Bank are made available in the form of an image archive, text and video libraries, a collection of alternative currencies, time currencies designed by artists, and other historic and contemporary artifacts, all presented in an adjoining room for those interested in a more detailed involvement with the concerns of the project.

Notes for a Time/Bank is currently on view at Documenta 13, Kassel. The installation will then travel to the 9th Gwangju Biennale, titled ROUNDTABLE.

New York

Hito Steyerl exhibition
The moment an image appears on a screen, a web of political relationships is not only reflected, but actively produced. This places the forces responsible for images at the very center of an ethics of production and reception. Hito Steyerl is an artist whose essays and artworks insist that this ethics is much more than a critical tool for explaining and decoding images, but actually serves to release the image, suspending it momentarily from political or economic imperatives to become the structure, content, and departure point for artistic subjectivity.

New book!

e-flux journal reader: The Wretched of the Screen 
by Hito Steyerl
with introduction by Franco “Bifo” Berardi

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 of Steyerl’s landmark essays from recent years in which she has steadily developed her very own politics of the image.
