Description

In the second edition of this idea-packed reader – first published to accompany the 2005 exhibition, “Soft Target. War as a Daily, First-Hand Reality” at BAK – artists, curators, theorists and others speak on the urgent subject of war in the post-9/11 world. The voices of artists are still needed to make sense of the current state of global conflict, financial meltdown and ecological disasters such as the BP oil spill. This edition, based on the “Undercurrents” series of symposia and conversations which followed the original show, includes a new preface and an extensive index, which allows key themes within the contributions to become visible on another level. With contributions by Ross Birrell, Boris Buden, Jordan Crandall, Bregje van Eekelen, Boris Groys, Viktor Misiano, Irit Rogoff, Martha Rosler, Sean Snyder and Hito Steyerl.
