If Time Is Still Alive
The City & The Good Life

The good life, and the life of the city, is now a question of both time and space. While we can see the effects of the spatial order of the pandemic on cities and publicness—with the distancing of bodies, the closing of shops and restaurants, et cetera—how does the temporal order become visible and understood?

In The Poetics of Space, Gaston Bachelard states that “our house is our corner of the world” (p. 26), a place shaped by memories and reveries. Yet the domestic sphere is certainly not to be seen as a site for retreating into a state of self-focused interiority, especially not in times of social distancing and […]

Die Stadt & Das gute Leben
Graz Kulturjahr 2020

What’s become of the idea of ​​a good life (in the city and elsewhere) in a twenty-first century already well underway, considering that the pursuit of a “good life for all”—“Buen Vivir” or “Vivir Bien”—was accorded constitutional status in Ecuador (2008) and Bolivia (2009) and has since been the subject of international debate as an […]



Isa Rosenberger
. . . the vast land from which she comes

In her artistic practice, Isa Rosenberger turns her gaze again and again toward forgotten (or repressed) histories in order to open up a context for them in the present, and thus also to facilitate alternative readings of history. In the year 1934, at the Volksheim Ottakring in Vienna (today Adult Education Center Ottakring), a dance […]

Camera Austria International 150/151

The instability currently seizing the entire realm of art and culture has impacted our work as well. Due to temporarily closed exhibition spaces all over the world, and the related postponement and restructuring of agendas, the situation for art magazines has also become rather unpredictable. This in turn influences one’s ability to critically accompany and […]

Benjamin Jones
Nothing, Like Something, Happens Anywhere

What must come together in order for an image to be created? Perception, apparatus, darkroom, paper, chemicals, skills of the craft, body, time—photography is a complex and comprehensive “discursive order,” a dispositif from which images emerge and to which they remain tied. Important here is to develop an understanding not only of each respective image, […]

Not so long ago, artists mainly contributed to the movements’ visual identity, creating banners, posters, websites, and so on. Today, however, artists and cultural producers increasingly tend to become central protagonists, whether as spokespeople or in shaping media tactics and broader strategy. […]
