When you were scratching your name into the mirror another few hundred people died. I guess they exist outside the borderline of what you call ‘kindness’. Kindness which in your mouth has the consistency of raw sewage. When you laugh it sounds like boiling lice.

Re-gendering the Indebted Man: Female Subjectivity in the Argentine Financial Crisis

Women demonstrate at the third Ni Una Menos protest against femicide, Buenos Aires, June 2017

The austerity programme imposed by the IMF after Argentina’s 2001 economic crisis, far from imposing debt universally as Maurizio Lazzarato’s figure of the ‘indebted man’ would have it, hit women hardest. George Jepson revisits this history to extract the figure of the ‘indebted woman’ it forged and the collective female body of protest that erupted as a result.

MEMES WITH FORCE – LESSONS FROM THE YELLOW VESTS

People have theorised recent social movements as memes before. However, they tend to make the phrase eclipse the content, placing the (representational) meme over the (real) movement.

This is not so much a movement that uses memes to make symbolic demands as a form of movement as meme.

 

 

 

 

 

The Affair of the Burning Police Car

Towards an Apotropaic Avant-Garde

This review of T.J. Clark’s 2013 book Picasso and Truth: From Cubism to Guernica first appeared on the website The Claudius App in 2014. It is republished here on the occasion of Clark’s newest volume, Heaven on Earth: Painting and the Life to Come (Thames & Hudson, 2018). In this long review-article, Daniel Spaulding describes the trajectory of Clark’s overall project, and suggests ways to divert the author’s melancholic view of modernity to radical ends.

 

This article is republished on the occasion of the exhibition Andy Warhol—From A to B and Back Again, at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, 12 November 2018 - 31 March, 2019. It was first published in 2012, on Art&Education.com, as a finalist in the Art and Deregulation context
