Spike Art Quarterly Kunstmagazin #52
The borders of fiction and reality are slipping ever further. A lot of what is behind the images on our screens remains hidden: their political utility; the algorithms through which they appear; the source of their magic. How does that change the nature of the exhibition? Is it moving from the white cube into virtual realms, into the urban fabric, into domestic spaces? Between networks, theory and the market, where is the power of exhibitions today?
Founded by the artist Rita Vitorelli in 2004, Spike is a bilingual German/English contemporary art magazine aimed at sustaining a vigorous, independent, and meaningful art criticism. At the heart of each issue are feature essays by leading critics and curators on artists making work that plays a significant role in current debates. Situated between art theory and practice and ranging far beyond its editorial base in Vienna and Berlin, Spike is both rigorously academic and stylishly essayistic. Spike’s renowned pool of contributing writers, artists, collectors and gallerists observe and reflect on contemporary art and analyse international developments in contemporary culture, offering its readers both intimacy and immediacy through an unusually open editorial approach that is not afraid of controversy and provocation.
