From Russia with Love​
e-flux in May

Dear friends,

This month we’ll be spending some time in Moscow, where we’ll release a new book edited by Boris Groys on Moscow conceptualism, open our first Russian Time/Bank branch, and together with Ekaterina Degot, present a series of public lectures and conversations on art and insurrection. Meanwhile, at home in New York, we hope you’ll have a chance to see Animism, the fifth iteration of a remarkable exhibition that has been traveling through Europe over the past few years. It’s curated by Anselm Franke. Also be sure to catch e-flux book co-op at MoMA PS1 before May 21, when it drives off to its next location. It’s filled with incredible art books and periodicals from more than 100 small and independent publishers from around the world. And if you happen to be in Ljubljana, e-flux video rental is on view at Moderna Galerija.

With warm wishes,

New book!

e-flux journal reader: Moscow Symposium: Conceptualism Revisited
Edited by Boris Groys

Beyond the view that multiple, globally dispersed conceptual art practices provide a heterogeneity of cultural references, Andrei Monastyrski and Collective Actions propose much more: other dimensions altogether, other spatiotemporal politics, other timescales, other understandings of matter, other forms of life—not only as works, but as a basic condition for being able to perceive artworks in the first place. With an introduction by Boris Groys and essays by Claire Bishop, Keti Chukhrov, Ekaterina Degot, Jörg Heiser, Terry Smith, Anton Vidokle, and Sarah Wilson.
