After Euphoria collects Jeff Derksen’s writings on art, architecture and globalism. Focusing on artistic practice and cultural critique, these essays examine the questions, research and propositions of neoliberalism’s synthesis of economy and affect. Exploring the works of Rem Koolhaas, Brian Jungen, Sam Durant, Andrea Geyer, Jin-me Yoon, Ken Lum, Ron Terada, Stan Douglas, Sabine Bitter/Helmut Weber and Alfredo Jaar, Derksen reveals the effects of globalization and its influence on the production and experience of culture. A founding member of Vancouver’s writer-run center, The Kootenay School of Writing, Derksen is a writer, poet, critic and scholar based in Vancouver and Vienna. His critical writing has previously appeared in Springerin, Archis, Open Letter, Camera Austria, C Magazine and Hunch. After Euphoria is the latest title from the Documents series, critical writings co-published with Les presses du réel.
