Transparenzen/Transparencies : The Ambivalence of a New Visibility
Simone Neuenschwander, Thomas Thiel (Eds.)


Edited by Simone Neuenschwander, Thomas Thiel

With contributions by Emmanuel Alloa, Neïl Beloufa, Clare Birchall, Juliette Blightman, Ryan Gander, Calla Henkel and Max Pitegoff, David Horvitz, Metahaven, Simone Neuenschwander, Katja Novitskova, Yuri Pattison, Manfred Schneider, Thomas Thiel

The globalized world seems at once transparent and opaque. The exhibition project “Transparencies” examined the cultural facets and atmospheres of these (non-)transparencies. The two-part, joint exhibition project in Bielefeld and Nuremberg was dedicated to developments in “transparent society,” asking how these are reflected in the current work by contemporary artists. The paradigm of transparency and the ambivalence of the term was addressed by participating artists in multiple, diverse ways. This book documents both exhibitions and outlines all of the contributions to this substantial project. Conceptually designed by Metahaven, it contains artistic statements and scientific essays that encourage an ongoing discussion of the subject.

In-between Dance Cultures : The Migratory Artistic Identity Of Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui And Akram Khan
Guy Cools (ed.)


Belgian-Moroccan Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and British-Bengali Akram Khan are two of today’s most prolific choreographers. Given their respective backgrounds and the practices they pursue, their artistic universes are largely built around their identity in-between dance cultures. Guy Cools, who accompanied both, situates their work within the larger critical debate on the (post)modern and (post-)migrant identity. Cools details some of their iconic choreographic pieces. This book offers a complementary view on questions of cultural identity taking the contemporary dancer’s somatic awareness and knowledge of the body as its starting point.

Interrupting The City – Artistic Constitutions Of The Public Sphere
S. Bax, P. Gielen, B. Ieven (Eds.)

To interrupt the city (be it digitally or materially) means to arrest the flow or circulation that the city consists of. The tactics by which this interruption is achieved may vary, ranging from a media offensive to riots in the streets, but each and every time these activities affect the public sphere, also make the public sphere. Thus, the public domain is constituted by a combination of social, political and media forces, in a continuous flux, continuously being interrupted. This book attempts to chart the conditions under which one is able to develop a voice in the public sphere, and to ask in what way these conditions could be altered by means of artistic interventions.

Spaces For Criticism – Shifts In Contemporary Art Discourses
Pascal Gielen, Thijs Lijster, Suzana Milevska, Ruth Sonderegger (Eds.)

 

Is art criticism losing ground, because of the internet and art blogs? Do people consider the authoritative art critics as their most important source to assess and filter what they want to see, read, etc.? Most recent discussions have evolved around the question “What is art criticism?”, this book wants to explore the question “Where is art criticism?”. It delves into new ways and spaces where art critics might interact with publics, works of art, artists and scholars.
