Intersubjectivity Vol. 1
Language and Misunderstanding

With contributions by Cory Arcangel, Fia Backström, Alain Badiou, Erica Baum, Xu Bing, Paul Chan, Andrew Durbin, Jimmie Durham, Daniel Grúň, Lucy Ives, Jenny Jaskey, William Kherbek, Nicky Marsh, Julia Moritz & YGRG, Ariane Müller, Vincent Romagny, Hito Steyerl

Intersubjectivity, a two-volume collection of essays, is concerned with a new account of our ideas of what subjects are, and what is means for them to meet. The project explores these concepts in the context of the interaction of non-sentient beings, attempting to move beyond anthropomorphic theories of objectivity and materiality, as well as subjects whose boundaries resist definition. Intersubjectivity takes up the complementary problems of nondiscursive language and nonlinguistic discourse, in an attempt to locate the distinctions and respective abilities of philosophy as a particular kind of art and art as a particular kind of philosophy.

The first volume, Language and Misunderstanding, addresses concretism and its discontents. The essays and performance texts herein argue for an expanded consideration of concretism in contemporary practices oriented toward the embodiment of language, in works that challenge the privileging of the body of the word over the body of the artist. Thus Cory Arcangel, Fia Backström, Erica Baum, Paul Chan, Jimmie Durham, and Hito Steyerl all contribute works that in different ways insist on the somatic nature of writing; Andrew Durbin, and Ariane Müller, and Vincent Romagny address the drift of meaning across material; Lucy Ives, Daniel Grúň, and the Young Girl Reading Group are skeptical of dogmas of authorship and identity; Alain Badiou asks when modern art will end; and Abraham Adams polemicizes against the loss of the body in the concrete work. With an introduction by Lou Cantor.

The Exhibitionist #12
Journal on Exhibition Making

Reflection
Jens Hoffmann, Julian Myers-Szupinska, and Liz Glass
Exhibitions are a social and collective form. Whether the products of a single artist or of a group, they gather together artworks (or objects, projects, residues) and construct from them an image of a social field. Just as understanding an exhibition involves thinking about the relations that exist among, and engender the possibility of imagining, that field, no less are exhibitions produced by a group. Beyond the artists and the exhibition maker(s) involved, an exhibition radiates from an expansive network: conservators, shippers, installers, writers, editors, designers, administrative types of all sorts, interns, guards, funders, promoters, and so on. Exhibitions are, furthermore, perceived by an audience or a public—another group—who are themselves internally divided and classed, cohesive or cacophonous….
