E-FLUX JOURNAL What is Contemporary Art?

Sternberg Press
Artists' Books
11 × 18 × 1.5 cm

This book began as a two-part issue of e-flux journal devoted to the question: What is contemporary art? At this point, has modernity become our antiquity? A single hegemonic “ism” has replaced clearly distinguishable movements and grand narratives. But what exactly does it mean to be working under the auspices of this particular ism? This absorbing collection of writings puts the apparently self-evident term into doubt, asking critics, curators, artists and writers to contemplate the nature of this catchall category. Contributors include Julieta Aranda, Brian Kuan Wood, Anton Vidokle, Cuauhtémoc Medina, Boris Groys, Raqs Media Collective, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Hu Fang, Jörg Heiser, Martha Rosler, Zdenka Badovinac, Carol Yinghua Lu, Dieter Roelstraete, and Jan Verwoert.
