TEXTE ZUR KUNST #101
MARCH 2016 “POLARITIES”

 


ISSUE NO. 101 / MARCH 2016 “POLARITIES”

Issue No. 101 of Texte zur Kunst takes “Polarities” as its theme – a term we associate with what’s unfolding around us right now: ideological polarization, from Pegida to Donald Trump. How do we understand the growing gap between the ideals of tech/smooth space (where the art world tends to reside, swiftly neutralizing any resistance as “content”) and the striated regions of material unrest? How do we understand “polarization” despite our dominant, and inherently continuous, neoliberal system? Given these macro conditions in which art critical and art historical discourses are currently being formed, and within which they will need to position themselves, could the image of polarization be something not to avoid but to engage; perhaps even a potentially generative model for times that are anything but ideology-free?

NETWORKS
Lars Bang Larsen (Ed.) - Documents of Contemporary Art Series

The dawn of the electronic media age in the 1960s began a cultural shift from the modernist grid and its determination of projection and representation to the fluid structures and circuits of the network, presenting art with new challenges and possibilities. This anthology considers art at the center of network theory, from the 1960s to the present.

Artists have used the “space of flows” as a basis for creating utopian scenarios, absurd yet functional propositions or holistic planetary visions. Others have explored the economies of reciprocity and the ethics of generosity, in works that address changed conditions of codependence and new sites of social negotiation. The “infra-power” of the network has been a departure point for self-organized counterculture and the creation of new types of agency. And a “poetics of connectivity” runs through a diverse range of work that addresses the social and material complexity of networks through physical structures and ambient installation, the mapping of the Internet, or the development of robots and software that take on the functions of artist or curator.

Joseph Beuys, Ursula Biemann, Heath Bunting, Critical Art Ensemble, Fernand Deligny, Peter Fend, Gego, Jobim Jochimsen, Koncern, Christine Kozlov, Pia Lindman, Mark Lombardi, Diana McCarty, Marta Minujín, Aleksandra Mir, Tanja Ostojic, Ola Pehrson, Walid Raad, Artüras Raila, Hito Steyerl, Tomaso Tozzi, Suzanne Treister, Ultra Red, Wolf Vostell, Stephen Willats
