e-flux journal presents: Art After Culture? New York | Day One: Boris Groys, and Hito Steyerl, introduced by Anton Vidokle

The opening evening of “Art After Culture?,” the fourth and cumulative installment of the conference series Art After Culture? organized in Rotterdam, Paris, Berlin, and New York launching off the next ten years of e-flux journal. Featuring Boris Groys, Hito Steyerl, and an introduction by Anton Vidokle.

The cumulative conference at e-flux asks: If we remember the artistic avant-garde tradition and its iconoclastic contempt for culture, how can we reconcile our own unknown culture with apparently simultaneous traditionalist fetishes? If we are now chained to an apparatus of representation that can only be spectacular in its scale, what is the project that art must necessarily undertake against reactionary self-homogenizing withdrawals? Can art still gain access to something larger than the culture it was born into? If staging mass ecological self-extinction is the ultimate spectacle, perhaps we should pause for a moment to see it not as human death but as a cultural endpoint. And if art—ancient, modern, or whatever—was always able to project past these endpoints, then what is art after culture?
