Spring/Summer 2016, Issue 41

Afterall, a journal of contemporary art, provides a forum for analysis of art’s context and seeks to inspire artists to see art as an agency for change. Each issue contains in-depth considerations of the work of contemporary artists, along with essays that discuss the work from various perspectives. The journal also features essays on art history and critical theory.

Issue 41 looks at how information technologies such as television and the internet have transformed relations of intimacy. The issue features in-depth studies of the work of Stuart Marshall, Ion Grigorescu, Holly Herndon, and Cooperativa Cráter Invertido, as well as essays by Chris Kraus on Kathy Acker, Hannah Black on intimacy and Nikos Papastergiadis on On Kawara. Finally, a number of case studies focus on historical experimental projects built around intentional communities, such as Iván Illich’s Intercultural Documentation Centre in Cuernavaca, Mexico.
