[ Neue Texte ]

The new issue of the multilingual republicart web-journal is now online (and highly recommended):

Whereas the concept of the public sphere was booming in the 1980s and 90s, now more and more it seems to be examined critically in discursive and political contexts, and at the same time, as a point of reference for emancipatory practices, it appears to have gone out of fashion...
... In the art field a growing trend to address partial public spheres / communities has become evident. Here the concept of "art for all" that was previously understood as an emancipatory concept is in danger of being overrun by customer-orientation and audience fetishism in a neo-liberal context. The current focus examines the double meaning of "publicum" in a series of articles from the fields of political theory, art criticism and activist practice.
The issue contains the following contributions:
  • Alex Demirovic: Hegemony and the Paradox of Public and Private
  • Nancy Fraser: Transnationalizing the Public Sphere
  • Maria Galindo: No matter how much you love me, I do not want to belong to you
  • Marion Hamm: Indymedia - Concatenations of Physical and Virtual Spaces
  • Miwon Kwon: Public Art as Publicity
  • Oliver Marchart: Staging the Political. (Counter-)Publics and the Theatricality of Acting
  • Stefan Nowotny: Clandestine Publics
  • Simon Sheikh: In the Place of the Public Sphere? Or, the World in Fragments
  • Paolo Virno: Publicness of the Intellect. Non-State Public Sphere and the Multitude
  • Linda M. G. Zerilli: "We feel our freedom": Imagination and Judgment in the Thought of Hannah Arendt

Publicum is edited by eipcp - european institute for progressive cultural policies (E-Mail) via republicart.
