Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art is pleased to announce the release of the sixteenth issue of Prefix Photo magazine. Addressing the theme of “walking and consciousness,” contributor Imre Szeman writes: “To champion walking today is to do what art has long sought to do: critique the imaginative and experiential vacuity of the existing state of things in the hope of bringing forth something different. Art and walking form a pair endowed with genuine critical power.” The issue also features other contributors addressing a host of photo, media and installation artists, as follows:

Warren Crichlow offers his perspective on Documenta 12. He discusses the potential of contemporary art for generating critical reflection on the exhibition as a medium and touches upon the work of artists Graciela Carnevale, Lotty Rosenfeld, Martha Rosler and others.

Deborah Root writes about the paseos of Mexico-based artist Francis Alÿs. She explores the concepts of itinerancy, public space and social allegory that wend their way through his work.

Lorraine Field, in her literary feature “Syrian Desert,” relays a magical account of her Middle
Eastern experience.

Other contributors include Ai Weiwei, Francis Alÿs, Lorraine Field, Andrea Geyer/Sharon Hayes/Ashley Hunt/Katya Sander/David Thorne, Luis Jacob, Sanja Ivekovic, Amar Kanwar, M. Simon Levin & Laurie Long, Virginia Mak, Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, Hugh Martin, Helen Verbanz, Andrew Wright and more.
