Vol. 38, 2017 no. 1/2, Breaking the Frame: Subversion from Within

Breaking the Frame: Subversion from Within looks at artists who undermine institutional conventions, and frequently institutional space, to pose a challenge to authority. But it also takes into consideration the fact that “subversive art — like subculture in general — is perpetually at risk of being maneuvered into the cultural mainstream.” With an editorial by Angela Bartholomew and articles by Susan Power, Catalina Imizcoz, Rachel Schwartz, Alida Jekabson, Isabelle Sully, Eva Fotiadi, Rosa te Velde, and Luna Goldberg, and including artist’s contributions by Gian Luigi Biagini, Patricia Kaersenhout, and Dick Verdult.

Vol. 37, 2016, no. 3/4, Translation as Method

With increasing frequency over the years, artists have been testing the nature and strength of the agreements between bodies – agreements that have been formed (or deformed) by attempts to communicate. Connecting the tail of 2016 to the head of 2017 with an issue on artistic approaches to translation affirms our faith in the necessity of a practice that persistently attempts to communicate across languages, disciplines, generations, and ideologies.

Vol. 37, 2016, no. 2, Constructed Identities

Constructed Identities takes you on a trip through Europe and a little beyond — a journey through space, as well as time. The issue (edited by Rosa te Velde) explores a selection of case studies to consider the selective uses of history in heritage, and it puts forth alternative approaches to question established definitions of identity. Featuring articles by Lila Athanasiadou, Isa Fahrenholz and Svenja Binz, Abla elBahrawy, Arna Mackic, Katinka de Jonge, and interviews with Jennifer Tosch and Wendelien van Oldenborgh. Artworks by Guy Köningstein, and on the cover a drawing by the Georgian artist Lado Darakhvelidze.

Vol. 37, 2016, no. 1, Cultural Policies Agendas of Impact

At the end of 2014, the Dutch Ministry of Culture (OCW) announced a new Art and Culture public fund, The Art of Impact, designating seven million euro to support art projects that have a distinct impact on society. With this programme, the policy of austerity initiated by the minister of culture (Halbe Zijlstra) entered a new phase. Ideologically, it shifts away from discrediting the arts as a left-wing hobby towards rendering the arts as a tool of intervention and engagement with society. What does it mean to attribute to the artists, designers and art institutions the social, economical and political responsibility of changing and improving the world? This issue delves into the historical grounds and present implications of arts and culture funding policies and programmes in the Netherlands and beyond.
