Flash Art 331 – Individuality and Collectivity | Issue Summer 2020
Flash Art 331 – Individuality and Collectivity | The Summer issue of Flash Art which cover story is dedicated to Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, is charachterised by multifaceted reflections on individuality and collectivity in a wide range of contexts — including psychology, public and domestic space, the internet, and the environment.
The reflection on bodies acting with and against bodies, is transposed on the level of an overproduction of transitory subjectivities which unfolds through the miscellaneous Olafur Eliasson essay by Elise Hunchuck while Carlos Kong notes how Neïl Beloufa “satirically underscores the precarious conditions [that] produce subjectivity.” The music duo Amnesia Scanner’s visual essay in which their distinctive dystopian vision implodes before the whisperings of an animatronic oracle. Tomás Saraceno’s studies on spiders and their behavior by Stefanie Hessler. Plus, a touching memory of Genesis Breyer P-Orridge by Jane Ursula Harris.
Also featuring Shumon Basar, Douglas Coupland and Hans Ulrich Obrist on the notion of “The Extreme Self”; and a reflection on the current global landscape by Marina Fokidis. Finally, the second episode of The Curatorial Gaze, column by Pierre Bal-Blanc, and much more.
