Inside MAP #23

MAP Commission – Michael Fullerton

Ahead of the British Art Show 7: In the Days of the Comet, Glasgow-based artist Michael Fullerton presents an exclusive new work in the magazine that explores ideas of power, both social and political.

Andrea Büttner
by Richard Birkett

Büttner’s practice explores the relationship among dependency and vulnerability inherent in the act of art-making and, in acknowledging the compromises of the artistic process, she offers a self-aware position from which to consider the aesthetics of production and critical value

Performance, Land Art, and Photography
by Francesco Gagliardi

From Gianfranco Gorgoni’s iconic shots of Robert Smithson’s ‘Spiral Jetty’, to Anthony McCall’s photographs of Carolee Schneemann’s ‘Interior Scroll’, Gagliardi outlines and explores the consequences of photographic mediation as the fundamental condition through which land art and performance from the 1960s and 70s might be understood

Jonathan Horowitz
Interview by Steven Cairns

Situating iconic figures of today, like Obama, Lindsay Lohan, Mel Gibson, in the terrain of aesthetic practice, Horowitz discusses the role of communication in art, and its ability to act as a persuasive cultural document

Simon Dybbroe Møller
by Dorothée Brill

Inversions, detours and rule-bending characterise Møller’s practice, one which reveals the embattled process of artistic thought and its arbitration through the necessity of physical display

Kelly Nipper
by Joanna Fiduccia

The representation of physical gesture in photography and video are central to Nipper’s practice, one which uses artistic media that focus not on the original performance, but on the connection between choreographed movement and geometric harmony

Emily Wardill
Interview by Hans Ulrich Obrist

Hans Ulrich Obrist interrogates the artist about epiphanies, the Winchester Widow and the necessity of politics

Artist Text: Mick Peter

The Glasgow-based artist presents three new drawings with a fictional text

The Devil Makes Work
by Fiona Jardine

Drawing a comparison between Dundee’s recent Nine Trades project, which looked at the remunerative jobs of artists via a series of residencies, and the Artist Placement Group from the 1960s, Jardine considers the socially, and economically, enmeshed position of the cultural worker and the circumstances of art production.

Based in Glasgow, MAP is an international quarterly devoted to covering the best in new and emerging contemporary art published in September, December, March and May. Find out more at www.mapmagazine.co.uk
