Art Against Art
is an in-depth critical art journal with writing that incorporates the basic logic of the market
as its premise and tries to look at art and culture from within and without this context from different angles. The authors range from art historians to market analysts, artists, sociologists, curators and cultural theorists. It was founded in 2015 by Taslima Ahmed and Manuel Gnam and is published bi-annually.
