Flash Art International No. 240
January-February 2005

In the January-February issue of Flash Art, Jeff Koons comes face to face with the magazine’s readership in an exclusive interview, and John Bock speaks to Michele Robecchi about his recent projects, including the remarkable new film Meechfieber.

With a special focus on the Netherlands, this issue finds out who’s who in Rotterdam and why collaborative, interdisciplinary projects have come to such prominence throughout the country. The sky’s not the limit, as we discover in Thomas Bayrle’s response to the work of Tomas Saraceno, and Katerina Gregos comes to grips with the urban interventions of Marc Bijl.

Heading into darker terrain, Yates McKee goes hunting for monsters in the work of Allora and Calzadilla; Sarah Douglas discusses graveyards, skinny boys and the River Styx with Hernan Bas; and Olesya Turkina discovers murder and necrorealism in recent art in St. Petersburg. In the “Theory” section, Marta Kuzma examines the politics behind major new museums in the former Eastern bloc.

In the news section, Andrea Bellini reports from Art Basel Miami Beach; Merrily Kerr fills us in on New York’s fall auctions; Carol Lu files her report from the Shanghai Biennale; and Susan Kendzulak goes reality checking at the Taipei Biennial. In the “Spotlight” section, Melissa Dunn finds out why Dan Graham’s new puppet rock opera advises us against trusting anyone over thirty, and, in “Global Art,” Peio Aguirre finds some new perspectives in the work of Sergio Prego.
Reviews in this issue include Paul Pfeiffer, Erwin Wurm, “The Undiscovered Country,” Scott Treleaven, David Claerbout, Akram Zaatari, “Polyphony,” Bedwyr Williams, Gilbert Hage, Peter Weibel, Conor McGrady, Cameron Jamie, E.V. Day, Maaike Schoorel, Pedro Cabrita Reis, Tim Lee, Maya Schindler, and Daisuke Nakayama.
