e-flux (electronic flux corporation) is a New York-based agency dedicated to international distribution of information on contemporary visual arts via the internet. Established in January 1999, e-flux announcements of exhibitions at public venues, press releases for publications, lectures, symposia and other types of cultural events, have developed a world-wide readership among art professionals and cultural producers. At this time the readers of e-flux constitute perhaps the largest existing network of such type.

Starting in September 2004, e-flux moved into a physical space–a small storefront located on the Lower East Side in New York–and opened to public. The first project at this location–e-flux video rental, conceived by Anton Vidokle and Julieta Aranda–-took the form of an apocryphal video rental store, and comprised a video archive of more than 550 single channel video works and art films, by nearly 250 international artists selected in collaboration with 46 curators. e-flux video rental has since traveled to Kunstwerke (Berlin), Manifesta foundation (Amsterdam), Moore Space (Miami), Portikus (Frankfurt) and INSA art space (Korea). The project will continue its tour through the end of 2006.

The current project–Martha Rosler Library–transforms the space into a public library and a reading room. The Martha Rosler Library includes nearly 8,000 books from Martha Rosler’s house, her studio, and her academic office in New Jersey. The Martha Rosler Library can be visited from Tuesday through Saturday, between 12 and 6 pm at 53 Ludlow Street.

e-flux has also produced online projects and published books such as: The Next Documenta Should Be Curated By An Artist; Do it; the Utopia Station poster project; and an image bank and an exhibition entitled An Image Bank for Everyday Revolutionary Life, based on the photo archive of David Alfaro Siqueiros
