The 60th Jahresring takes the form of a compilation of artist interviews and offers a snapshot of a highly active art scene that stretches from Berlin, as a new international center for art. Nicolaus Schafhausen put a series of questions to thirty-one art practitioners, less geared toward the artists’ respective praxis and more toward the conditions under which it arises.

Art’s presence in the field of new media has never been more pronounced; access to media images and Internet-based possibilities for research have significantly altered contemporary art production. The art market too has changed, gaining influence in the field of contemporary art as even art institutions take a different approach today than they did twenty years ago.

The focus in these interviews is on the respective self-positioning by the artists in an era shaped by such far-reaching changes. What emerges are temporally fixed positions within an activity that is, for the most large part, associated with precarious working conditions and the logistics of the market more than ever before. This book offers insight into this “other” dimension of an artist’s existence and registers attention economy as a central component of contemporary art production.

Compilation of Translations: One Year at Ludlow 38
Clara Meister (Ed.)


Texts by Andrew Berardini, Jean-Baptiste Decavèle, Isobel Harbison, Lucy Ives, Graham Parker, Barry Schwabsky, Helena Sidiropoulos, Antje Stahl, Paul Stephens; interviews with Bo Christian Larsson, some of the members of A Dog Republic, Maria Loboda

The publication gives an overview of the 2012 curatorial year at MINI/Goethe-Institut Curatorial Residencies Ludlow 38. Curatorial resident Clara Meister’s program focused on different concepts of translation, bringing together an interdisciplinary exhibition program based on the assumption that artistic ideas can be translated into disparate forms and therefore can take varying modes of expression. Four solo exhibitions with Natalie Czech, Bo Christian Larsson, Saâdane Afif, and Maria Loboda, as well as a collaborative project with A Dog Republic (Jean-Baptiste Decavèle, Nico Dockx, Yona Friedman, Helena Sidiropoulos, Krist Torfs) were accompanied by small poster publications, which constitute the individual chapters of the book. Writers, artists, and thinkers were invited to contribute playful essays that were either a source of inspiration for the exhibition or linked to its ideas.
