Not Working Reader Maurin Dietrich & Gloria Hasnay (Eds.)

Published by Kunstverein München, München and Archive Books, Berlin, 2020, 184 pages (b/w ill.), 16.2 × 23.4 cm, German / English

Price: €15

Produced on the occasion of the exhibition Not Working, Artistic production and matters of class at Kunstverein München September 12 – November 22, 2020.

Not Working brings together the contributions by artists, theorists and writers who in their work examine the interdependence of artistic production and social class. The complex structures and substantial rise in social inequalities, particularly visible in light of the current pandemic, have given the concept of class a wide range of connotations. Despite the ongoing attempts to view contemporary art in the sense of “class homogeneity”; it remains complicit in the reproduction and masking of existing conditions which it often claims to overcome. The texts in this book form a ground were class can be mediated with respect to artistic practices and other structures in the art world.

With contributions by Annette Wehrmann, Dung Tien Thi Phuong, Josef Kramhöller, Laura Ziegler and Stephan Janitzky, Leander Scholz, Lise Soskolne, Mahan Moalemi, Marina Vishmidt and Melanie Gilligan, and Steven Warwick.

Politics of Study Sidsel Meineche Hansen & Tom Vandeputte (Eds.)

Published by Open Editions, London, 2016, 128 pages, 16 × 21 cm, English

Price: €24

Universities and art schools alike have been subjected to the pressure of recent austerity politics and the ongoing attempt to transform higher education according to the demands of reigning neoliberals. In this context, it is urgent to conceive of alternative frameworks and methodologies of study – whether within, outside or at the margins of academic institutions. This book examines the current interest in education through a series of conversations with artists, theorists, activists and educators, including Suhail Malik, Brian Holmes, Ruth Sonderegger, Gerald Raunig, Judy Chicago, Gal Kirn, Mohammad Salemy, Melissa Gordon, Marina Vishmidt and Andrea Fraser.
