McKenzie Wark Podcast series: The Artist-Publisher. Introduction with Juliette Desorgues
Publishing too can be a kind of art practice. In The Artist-Publisher podcast series, McKenzie Wark talks to artists who are also publishers and publishers whose work is a kind of art practice. Zines and books, made cheaply or by the thousands, or web-based journals available for free – these seem antithetical to the unique work of art. And yet the creation of meaning around art practices requires this other kind of practice of publishing written works.
Contributors include Julieta Aranda, Jacqueline de Jong, Deluge Books, Hedi El Kholti and GB Jones. The series includes an introduction with Juliette Desorgues.
McKenzie Wark is the author, among other things, of Philosophy for Spiders: on the low theory of Kathy Acker (Duke University Press 2021) and The Beach Beneath the Street: the Everyday Life and Glorious Times of the Situationist International (Verso 2011). She is professor of culture and media at The New School in New York City.
Juliette Desorgues is a curator and writer. She is currently Curator of Visual Arts at MOSTYN. She previously worked as Associate Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London and held curatorial positions at the Barbican Art Gallery, London and Generali Foundation, Vienna. She studied Art History at the University of Edinburgh, the University of Vienna and University College London.
