The selection of essays included in this book seeks to highlight an ongoing topical thread that ran throughout the first eight issues of e-flux journal—a sequence of overlapping concerns passed on from one contribution to the next. While it is our hope that the essays included here can begin to give a sense of how varied the concerns and urgencies being engaged today are, we also expect that certain consistencies and overarching issues will emerge through them, and help us shape the forthcoming editions of the journal.

—Julieta Aranda, Anton Vidokle, Brian Kuan Wood

Initiated in fall 2008, e-flux journal is a monthly online art publication. Its topics and themes are developed through open-ended invitations to art practitioners and thinkers as diverse as its readership.
