#35 Spring 2013

We begin the Spring of 2013 with our new series "Theories for the 21st Century" by guest editor Armen Avanessian and a proposal for a new philosophical materialism by the speculative realist Quentin Meillassoux.
Jennifer Krasinski discovers the places of death beneath the perfect surfaces of Ed Atkins HD videos, and Hans-Jürgen Hafner rates Heinrich Dunst's conceptual work by retrospecting on his beginnings in Vienna in the 1980s. Oliver Basciano examines the influence of different professional expectations, poses and meshes in the works of Cosima von Bonin, and the Swedish performance artist and choreographer Mårten Spångberg shares his views on space, rhythm, expectation and embodiment with Filipa Ramos. Rita Vitorelli talks with the director of the Kunsthalle Vienna, Nicolas Schafhausen, on his curatorial approach and commitment to discourse.
