“The Guide to
Shopping addresses the great stealth campaign of our day–no, not
bioterrorism! but the makeover of all human intercourse into
shopping.”– from Rhonda Lieberman’s introduction.

As final preparations take shape for this summer’s Documenta 11,
key intellectual force on curator Okwui Enwezor’s advisory circle. The
art historian, whose seminars at Berlin’s Humboldt-Universität have
become a magnet for the artistic and cultural communities of that city,
talks to contributing editor Daniel Birnbaum about Duchamp, Joyce, the
philosophy of science, the vagaries of globalization–and what they all
have to do with art today.

Plus, Richard Tuttle contributes this month’s “Artists Curate.”
together the work of Jean Fautrier, Agnes Martin, Carlo Crivelli, John
Constable, and Peter Halley, not to mention an Attic vase from the sixth
century BC, a Mamluk mosque lamp, and a painted statue of a tiger by
American folk artist Felipe Benito Archuleta.

This month’s cover goes to the late, under-recognized Hélio Oiticica
on the occasion of his Wexner Center retrospective. This sultry pinup is
but one frame from the Brazilian artist’s 1973 slide installation,
Neyrotika, an index of encounters meant to be viewed from hammocks
strung from the gallery walls.
