Aperture’s "Lit." issue available now

In Aperture's "Lit." issue, celebrated British novelist Tom McCarthy, remarking on the relationship of words and images, writes: "Perhaps in the end the difference between image and word isn't relevant.

As our increasingly image-driven culture arguably places new... continue reading

Eija-Liisa Ahtila’s “Studies on the Ecology of Drama 1”
GALLERI CHARLOTTE LUND, Stockholm
Eija-Liisa Ahtila, Studies on the Ecology of Drama 1, 2014.

by KIM WEST

Human beings are destroying the planet. If we want to save it we must therefore make inhuman art. Arguments to this effect seem to have enjoyed some currency in recent curatorial practice.

Mean Girls: Keren Cytter and “Vengeance”

by MELISSA GRONLUND

“I’m so excited,” a young woman says, about an advertising meeting that would make your eyes water with boredom. “Don’t worry, that’ll pass,” her older colleague replies. It’s a flat cliché, and he delivers it with a withering smile of self-congratulation.
