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.
