MARCH 2017 “THEY ARE US"

 

ISSUE NO. 105 / MARCH 2017 “THEY ARE US / WIR SIND IHR”

With Issue #105, TZK considers the nationalist, conservative, and racist ideologies that have recently become more visible across Europe and the US, giving particular focus to questions of border politics and migration — of humans, of data, of patrimony, of signs. Advised by Helmut Draxler, Isabelle Graw, and Susanne Leeb, this issue was conceived prior to the US presidential election as a cooler reflection on present political debates. And yet having been produced amid the chaos of the Trump administration’s first weeks, it also necessarily stands as a reflection of political-aesthetic thinking during markedly volatile times: Wir sind Ihr? They are us? We are them?

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?

Aesthetics of the Flesh
Felix Ensslin, Charlotte Klink (Eds.)


With contributions by Jennifer Allen, Sabeth Buchmann, Annett Busch, Nils Büttner, Marcus Coelen, Discoteca Flaming Star, Helmut Draxler, Felix Ensslin, Mechthild Fend, Susanne Leeb, Christoph Menke, Frank Ruda, Jan de Vos, Charles T. Wolfe

Word becomes flesh, God becomes pigment, beauty becomes empirical form, power negotiates itself in matter—and vice versa: these are some of the connotations carried by the aesthetics of the flesh.

Flesh has been negotiated with the incarnate, the skin-like surface of paint transcends its material condition toward the embodiment of spirit. But flesh is also, for example, behind the postcolonial metaphor of anthropophago (i.e., incorporating multiple cultural traditions that are at war with each other). It can be further associated with the material of surgery, itself an heir to contradictory impulses—namely, the discourse of modern aesthetics on the one hand, and of a positivist, even naïve scientism on the other. Flesh is the topos of a thought that is unthinkable and the amoral site where force is creative. Philosophically, these primal scenes of the flesh are grouped by Descartes, and also in the radical enlightenment of philosophical materialism. Following on from Cartesian dualism, philosophy is faced with the task of valorizing the flesh beyond the religious support of incarnation. Finally, the never-ending thought which sees the flesh as an unattainable other appears—always present in its absence in each and every aesthetic discourse.

This reader, based on a three-day symposium at the State Academy of Fine Arts, Stuttgart, traces the aesthetic concept of flesh in four sections: “Cut Power Matter,” “Form Cannibalism,” “Flesh Skin Surface,” and “Word Flesh Thought.” From perspectives as diverse as art history, religion, psychoanalysis, psychology, materialist philosophy, phenomenology, surgery, film studies, and literary studies, the articles present this concept, while at the same time showing how it surpasses the attempts to systematize or define it.

TEXTE ZUR KUNST #100
December 2015 "The Canon"


ISSUE NO. 100
DECEMBER 2015
„THE CANON“

“Our 100th issue is dedicated to the question of the “canon.” We take up this theme with an interest in reflecting on the journal’s own role in the field of contemporary art — one that, when first initiated in 1990, was markedly counter-canonical, vigorously contesting certain methods of critique while supporting others. And yet, we pause here to acknowledge that after 25 years, we have also doubtlessly played a crucial part in shaping a particular discourse, even normativizing it to some degree. Could it even be said that TzK has established a canon in its own right? With this issue, we now take stock of what TzK’s relationship to the canon might be, and moreover, what the notion of canonicity in 2015 might now represent.”
