Flash Art #326

 - Flash Art #326
The summer issue of Flash Art is an attempt to map the ecological breakdown that is restructuring our belief systems, forcing us to conceive of new relational modes that reappraise our centrality in the world and advocate for a new continuity with the other.
As we unlearn ways of thinking that have presumed the predominance of man, we will move toward a non-anthropocentric perspective that conceives of human existence in permanent hybridization with other living and/or artificial beings: bots, algorithms, plants, data, animals, minerals.
Issue #326 traces this radical paradigm shift through an interdisciplinary approach that includes numerous perspectives and methodologies. Included are analyses of artistic, architectural, curatorial, and sound-based practices that address the climate emergency, as well as essays by noted thinkers and practitioners including Graham Harman, Nicolas Bourriaud, John Luther Adams, Felicity D. Scott, Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli and Emanuele Coccia.
These are accompanied by texts that offer theoretical reflections on contemporary creativity. Features in this issue include in-depth texts on Forensic Architecture, Dora Budor, Joan Jonas, among others.
Such alternative visions, worldviews, and solutions are needed now more than ever in this time of radical transition.
Flash Art is a contemporary art and culture magazine (and a publishing platform) founded in 1967. Within a decade, it became an indispensable point of reference for artists, critics, collectors, galleries, and institutions. In 2020, Flash Art became a quarterly publication, at the same time increasing its trim size and updating its graphic identity. The magazine offers a fresh perspective on the visual arts, covering a range of transdisciplinary approaches and fostering in-depth analyses of artist practices and new cultural directions. Today, Flash Art remains required reading for all who navigate the international art scene.
Flash Art is known for it covers featuring artists who subsequently become leading figures in the art world. The magazine includes photoshoots, productions, critical essays, monographic profiles, conversations with emerging and established artists, and a range of ongoing and thematic columns that change every few years. The long history of the magazine is also highlighted by pivotal texts from the archive that are included in the publication time to time. Finally, every issue offers a highly curated selection of the best institutional exhibitions on the global scene.
