This May/June in Artforum—
as Covid-19 throws the violence and injustice of one way of life into horrifically stark relief, it also forces us to envision new ways of seeing, knowing, acting, and resisting. Artforum
asked 20 artists, writers, and collectives— among them hannah baer, the Cinema Worker Solidarity Fund, Brian Eno, Eileen Myles, Yoko Ono
, Paul B. Preciado, Luc Tuymans
, and Andrea Zittel—to contribute essays and projects reflecting on the pandemic and the worlds it may make and unmake. Plus, Hal Foster on the art of Donald Judd, Emily LaBarge on the art of Meriem Bennani, Marina Abramović
on Ulay, and more.
