Spike #51 raises the question of the social role of art, and many more, with: Grzegorz Kowalski; Bob Flanagan’s Visiting Hours; Angela Bulloch on Damien Hirst; Cyprien Gaillard’s Desniansky Raion; a roundtable with Chus Martínez, Michaela Meise and Dieter Lesage; Dorothea Von Hantelmann; Kenny Schachter; Daniel Baumann; the portraits of Dorothy Iannone, Tetsumi Kudo, and Marie Angeletti; an interview with Josef Strau; an essay by Jan Verwoert; the TV series The Crown; Andrew Berardini on Jimmie Durham’s retrospective in LA…
The power of art and its social role are the subjects of a roundtable discussion with curator Chus Martínez, artist Michaela Meise and philosopher Dieter Lesage at Spike Berlin. Josef Strau talks about how art saved him, while Kenny Schachter finds it both a remedy and a defence. Daniel Baumann delves into the promise of form, and for the critic Jan Verwoert a key function of art is that it teaches forms of conduct. Profiles on the painter Dorothy Iannone and her connections to Fluxus, and the Japanese artist Tetsumi Kudo and his “philosophy of impotence”, are joined by pieces taking on the decline of the supermodel, the Netflix series The Crown, Jimmie Durham’s retrospective at the Hammer Museum, and much more.
Founded by the artist Rita Vitorelli in 2004, Spike Art Quarterly is a quarterly magazine on contemporary art published in English and German which aims at sustaining a vigorous, independent, and meaningful art criticism. At the heart of each issue are feature essays by leading critics and curators on artists making work that plays a significant role in current debates. Situated between art theory and practice and ranging far beyond its editorial base in Vienna and Berlin, Spike is both rigorously academic and stylishly essayistic. Spike’s renowned pool of contributing writers, artists, collectors and gallerists observe and reflect on contemporary art and analyse international developments in contemporary culture, offering its readers both intimacy and immediacy through an unusually open editorial approach that is not afraid of controversy and provocation.

The American Issue #1
299 792 458 m/s is a magazine created in 2016 by Robert Kulisek and David Lieske in New York City. It’s inaugural Issue, The American Issue brings together a large variety of contemporary photographers, stylists, artists and designers with a focus on a transatlantic network that heavily influences the current fashion discourse.
299 792 458 m/s was inspired by Sibylle, the only fashion publication in existence during the former German Democratic Republic (1956 – 1989).
As a meta-fashion magazine, Sibylle operated with minimal access to western designer clothes, and opened up historical possibilities into uncharted territories of fashion-photography.
Marie Angelletti, Claire Christerson, Than Hussein Clark, Marcus Cuffie, Buck Ellison, Dese Escobar, Heike-Karin Föll, Matt Holmes, Annette Kelm, Eckhaus Latta, Andrea Longacre-White, Torbjørn Rødland, Ryan Wei, Dena Yago, H.B. Peace, Centre for Style, and many more.

May no.16 focuses on recent feminist debates actualizing the history of Italian feminist collectives of the 1970s and 1980s. The issue is a continuation of the issue 4 of May, which reprinted and translated a selection of texts from the time. The issue’s touchstone is the work of writer and co-founder of Rivolta Femminile, Carla Lonzi. Throughout her life, Lonzi refused the power of a masculine creativity that exploits the reproductive, supportive activity of women. The texts assembled in May no.16 bring that refusal to contemporary light.

About MAY Revue:
Conceived as a collective space in which to develop thoughts and confront positions on artistic production, May magazine examines, quaterly, contemporary art practice and theory in direct engagement with the issues, contexts and strategies that construct these two fields. An approach that could be summed up as critique at work – or as critique actively performed in text and art forms alike.
Featuring essays, interviews, art works and reviews by artists, writers and diverse practitioners of the arts, the magazine also intends to address the economy of the production of knowledge – the starting point of this reflection being the space of indistinction between information and advertisement typical of our time. This implies a dialogue with forms of critique produced in other fields.
