Open is a cahier that reflects upon contemporary public domain from a cultural perspective. Through a thematic investigation into the changing conditions of public domain and through new ideas relating to this space, Open aims to make a structural contribution to the development of theories about these subjects and to function as a platform for reflection on socio-cultural and artistic practices. Among the international authors writing for Open are philosophers of culture, sociologists, media theorists, architecture and art critics and political scientists. Published twice annually.
This issue features contributions by Chantal Mouffe, Thierry de Duve, Boris Groys, Michael Hardt, Simon Sheikh, and Irit Rogoff.
