WOLFGANG TILLMANS FOR JAHRESRING

For its 64th iteration, Jahresring enlisted Wolfgang Tillmans to guest edit an issue, which the photographer has titled “What is Different?”:

“We have known for some time that there are people who feel drawn to esoteric conspiracy theories. What is new, however, is that hard facts are no longer believed by wide segments of the population. During the past two years, I have come to realise that if 30% of the electorate are resistant to rational argument, we are on a slippery slope.

“In light of all this, I wanted to investigate [by interviewing scientists, politicians, journalists, and social workers] why the backfire effect is having more impact today than it did ten, twenty, or forty years ago. What has changed? What is different? This latter phrase became the title of the book.” — Wolfgang Tillmans, in The Guardian*

 

WHAT IS DIFFERENT?, JAHRESRING 64, edited by Wolfgang Tillmans and Brigitte Oetker. Published by Sternberg Press.

JOHN DOUGLAS MILLAR

John Douglas Millar’s BRUTALIST READINGS—“a significant intervention into recent debates on the place of literature and writing in the context of contemporary art”*—brings together ten new essays by the London-based writer.

Here is Millar on Pierre Guyotat, on “conceptual writing and its discontents,” on Paul [Beatriz] Preciado’s Testo Junkie and Lauren Oldfield Ford’s Savage Messiah, on the October generation and the novels of Chris Kraus, on the critical misreadings of Walter Benjamin’s Arcades as a “roadmap” to everything from Burroughs and Acker to surfing the web.

BRUTALIST READINGS concludes with a 2012 conversation between Millar and Simon Critchley, the author of The Ethics of DeconstructionVery Little…Almost Nothing, Memory Theatre, and Bowie.
