OnCurating Issue 31: Spheres of Estrangement: Art, Politics and Curating is launching with a party at Motto Berlin on July 23.
The evening includes presentations and introductions by publisher Dorothee Richter and editor Paul Stewart (on behalf of the editorial team). Penny Rafferty will read from ‘Vampires: Aesthetics to Ethics 1922-to the present day‘ and there will be a performance lecture by Milos Trakilovic.
The issue includes contributions from Joesphine Baker-Heaslip, Jonas Becker, Franco ‘Bifo’ Beradi, Carson Chan, Anke Hennig, and others. It was born out of the Saas-fee summer institute of art and focuses on “estrangement the five editors have applied the thematic approaches from the school back into their own worlds”.
The issue asks “what artistic, architectural and curatorial approaches to estrangement offer current discourse in organisation, aesthetics and activism. The articles unpack estrangement for the political, social and cultural sprint of our time”.
