Overview

Since its launch in 1999, Afterall, a journal of art, context, and enquiry, has offered in-depth considerations of the work of contemporary artists, along with essays that broaden the context in which to understand it. Published three times a year,  Afterall also features essays on art history and critical theory.

Issue 30 looks at artists whose practices respond to specific local contexts in different ways, from American artist Jimmie Durham’s installations about US politics and civil rights to Israeli artist Yael Bartana’s films about contemporary Europe. Texts focusing on specific projects in Spain, the UK and Italy focus on the relationship of the economy to the local site, whether through the effects on art education of the housing boom, the politics of local commissioning processes or the relationship of urban art centers to their neighborhoods. Other artists’ groups featured in this issue are the collectives Archivo Caminante from Argentina and Ruang Rupa from Indonesia.
