Texte Zur Kunst #104
DECEMBER 2016 "THE INDIVIDUAL"

Issue #104 of TzK examines a key protagonist of the modern age: the individual. As our cover suggests, there is an inherent tragedy to this being who, however autonomous, is beholden to a program that it must internalize at the price of suffering enormously. This issue takes up the individual not as a fixed subject, but as a mode of the self that shifts according to the current form of governance, asking how 15-some years of the “new spirit of capitalism” has shaped her – as an artist, as an entrepreneur, as a “productive” contemporary self.

Texte Zur Kunst #103
SEPTEMBER 2016 “POETRY”

TZK #103 addresses “poetry,” a language form central to the recent shift toward affect in contemporary critical writing. Seeing the “artist-poet” as a vital site for the intersection of politics, affect, and digitality, we consider her voice and her currency from various perspectives, pro and con, across generations, analyzing her rising success, also asking what is gained and lost in this move from “rational” thought to what one feels? Scanning populist poetry, anarchist poetry, post-millennial net-poetry, the poetry of surplus-language and social media, the art historical poetic/poet-turned-object, and shades of fading Poesie, this issue, conceived by the editors with John Kelsey and Isabelle Graw explores how the seeming immediacy of #poetry and the suggestion of a hyper-personal voice correlates with current economic demand to claim visibility.

TEXTE ZUR KUNST #102
JUNE 2016 “FASHION”


Art and fashion have always been interrelated. And it’s due to fashion’s ability to quickly capture social shifts that the art world has repeatedly turned to it. But as Texte zur Kunst No. 102 proposes, it is fashion’s protagonists, recently, that have been markedly drawing on art conceptual practices (e.g., parasitism, collective authorship, détournement, and forms of institutional critique) as they push back against the pressures of a hyper-accelerated fashion market. In this issue, TzK examines, also, how the industry’s current volume is a product of its late-’00s promise of online democratization; the changing function of such long-held value designations as “luxury,” “discount,” and “underground,” and the role of “real”-er bodies in a climate wherein models are preferably “nodels” or “othered” bodies, hyper-individualised to stand out in the stream.

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?
