Public School

I'm excited to start team-teaching the class Public School: Art in the City with artist Paul Ramírez-Jonas this semester. The course is run in conjunction with The Futures Initiative at CUNY Graduate Center, and students are drawn from Hunter College, Queens College, and the GC. No class takes place at a CUNY site; instead we use all five boroughs of New York as our campus. The website we are running in conjunction with the course, which includes the syllabus and blog reports of each class, can be found here.

Conversation with Alexandra Pirici

A public conversation with the artist Alexandra Pirici about her performance work, for the Impulse Theatre Festival 2017. This event at Kunstverein Düsseldorf was billed as "Gestures of the Political" but we talk more about digital technology than politics. Link here.

Against Digital Art History

In November 2015 I was invited to an interdisciplinary conference at the Franklin Humanities Institute at Duke University to talk about the methodological issues affecting my field, i.e. contemporary art history. I gave this paper, 'Against Digital Art History', which is now online here. #fhiFUTURES

I was interviewed about the future of art for BBC Radio 4's Futureproofing (broadcast 18 January 2017, repeated on 21 January). The programme as a whole seems a bit lost (this is radio: why spend so long in that dreadful installation in Singapore?) and there are better episodes (e.g. the one on Intimacy), but you can hear me chip in at around 23 mins.

Japanese translation of Artificial Hells

The Japanese translation of Artificial Hells is now out! Thanks to translator Toshikatsu Omori for all his diligent questions. Not sure why they put Parreno on the cover (I wasn't consulted).

Radical Museology in Korean!

I haven't seen it in person yet, but here's an image of the cover that Dan Perjovschi found on Facebook. Red and shiny.
