Processuality and performativity, and more recently dramaturgy and choreography, are terms often used in analyses of exhibitions and other curatorial formats. These attributions reflect the changes curatorial practice has undergone over the past twenty years in the wider context of cultural and economic globalization and the related notions of acceleration, action orientation, and mobility. In this light, the exhibition manifests itself as a transdisciplinary and transcultural set of spatiotemporal relations, which is time-based by its very nature. Focusing on time instead of the typically predominant category of space, this publication—the second volume in the Cultures of the Curatorial series—takes up the key aesthetic, social, political, and economic issues of the early twenty-first century running through the field and framed by the axes of exhibiting and the temporal.

Aesthetic Politics in Fashion
Elke Gaugele (Ed.)
Texts by Endora Comer-Arldt, Ilka Becker, Tanja Bradaric, Martina Fineder, Eva Flicker, Elke Gaugele, Birgit Haehnel, Alicia Kühl, Michael R. Müller, Sabina Muriale, Taro Ohmae, Barbara Schrödl, Ruby Sircar, Birke Sturm, Monica Titton
Aesthetic Politics in Fashion outlines critical studies in the present cross-sections of fashion, art, politics, and global capitalism. Critically examining contemporary collaborations of artists, media, and fashion labels, this groundbreaking anthology locates fashion within ecological and ethical discourses, postcolonial styles, and critical reflections on whiteness. Contributions from a distinguished group of international scholars debate fashion as a cultural phenomenon at the intersection of artistic, creative, economic, and everyday practices.
Aesthetic economies, the production of space, and alternative aesthetic politics are explored from interdisciplinary angles: art history, cultural science, sociology, design, and fashion studies. Aesthetic Politics in Fashion advances theorizing of fashion as an aesthetic metapolitics.

The Phantom of Liberty
Contemporary Art and the Pedagogical Paradox
Tone Hansen, Lars Bang Larsen (Eds.)
Contributions by Emanuel Almborg, Nils Christie, Carl Hegemann, Ane Hjort Guttu, Dave Hullfish Bailey, Adelita Husni-Bey, Carsten Rene Jørgensen, Lars Bang Larsen, Sharon Lockhart, Magnus Marsdal, Marit Paasche, Allan Sekula
One of the few things we have in common in contemporary society is the future of our children. But it seems that even the “we” of childhood, of learning and free play, has turned into a common ground for instrumentalization and competition. Today, the pedagogical paradox—Kant’s meditation on the paradox that the subject’s predisposition for freedom must be learned—is increasingly lost in governmental obsession about the efficiency of education and schooling. From another perspective, artists are addressing questions of childhood, play, and pedagogy.
What ideological and moral transformations is the school system currently undergoing? What do the psychiatric diagnoses and treatments mean that are increasingly applied to children and youth? What happened to the reform pedagogy of the twentieth century? What is the status of childhood in the era of the consuming child and the playing adult? These are some of the questions addressed by The Phantom of Liberty, which sets out to reestablish a social and aesthetic dialogue between visual art and psychology, philosophy, pedagogy, and critical journalism.
The Phantom of Liberty: Contemporary Art and the Pedagogical Paradox is published following the exhibition “Learning for Life” curated by Tone Hansen and Ane Hjort Guttu, November 11, 2012–February 24, 2013, at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter (HOK).

Contributions by Can Altay, Ayreen Anastas and Rene Gabri, Ricardo Basbaum, Céline Condorelli, Cooperativa Crater Invertido, Mark Fisher and Nina Möntmann, Daniel Foucard, Rebecca Gordon-Nesbitt, Elaine W.

Cluster is a network of eight contemporary visual arts organizations that are each located in residential areas situated on the peripheries of European cities, extending to the Middle East with one member in Holon, Israel. Each organization is focused on commissioning, producing, and presenting contemporary art, and the nature of the work is often experimental, process-driven, involves research, is based on working with international and local artists, and often engages with diverse publics on a local level.
Compiled after a series of meetings in each organization over a period of two years, Cluster: Dialectionary aims to find new ways to position this work and the work of contemporary visual arts organizations more broadly, particularly in relation to wider social, political, and cultural concerns.
The book includes essays by Andrea Phillips, Mark Fisher and Nina Möntmann, Marion von Osten, and Cluster members. These are accompanied by a series of keywords that are drawn from the practices and experiences of the people who work at, visit, and live with the organizations. They have both been produced within the contexts of the projects that gave rise to them, as well as written especially for the publication. The contributors include Can Altay, Ayreen Anastas and Rene Gabri, Pierre Bal Blanc, Alexandre Baudelot, Ferran Barenblit, Ricardo Basbaum, Binna Choi, Céline Condorelli, Cooperativa Crater Invertido, Eyal Danon, Julien Duc-Maugé, Udi Edelman, Mark Fisher and Nina Möntmann, Daniel Foucard, Dora Garcia, Rebecca Gordon-Nesbitt, Elaine W. HO, Annette Krauss, Bojana Kunst, Maria Lind, Pablo Martinez, Mattin, Sanne Oorthuizen, Marion von Osten, Emily Pethick, Natasa Petresin-Bachelez, Andrea Phillips, Tadej Pogacar, Dimitrina Sevova, Simon Sheikh, Louise Shelley, Steven Ten Thije, Mathilde Villeneuve, and Jason Waite.
The members of Cluster are: CAC Brétigny, Brétigny-sur-Orge; Casco – Office for Art, Design and Theory, Utrecht; CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo, Móstoles, Madrid; The Israeli Center for Digital Art, Holon; Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers, Paris; P74 Center and Gallery, Ljubljana; The Showroom, London; and Tensta konsthall, Stockholm.
