On Current Art and Imported Remoteness
Sophia Y. Hao & Edgar Schmitz (Eds.)
Hubs and Fictions, originally a touring forum, invited international curators, writers and producers to probe how fiction plays out in a globally distributed art-world ecology and to discuss how infrastructures are invented against its background. Staged sequentially in 2012 at Cooper Gallery – University of Dundee, Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art and Goldsmiths London, the forum operated as a satellite event to Edgar Schmitz’s exhibition Surplus Cameo Décor at Cooper Gallery. The book functions as a deliberately discontinuous reader, juxtaposing documents, negotiations and reflections from and on the conversations. It also includes a preface by Andrea Phillips, a new image sequence by Schmitz and a suite of reflexive annotations exchanged between Hao and Schmitz. With contributions by Tobias Berger, Guy Brett, Simon Groom, Sophia Hao, Lisa Le Feuvre, Ma Lin, Markus Miessen and Federica Bueti, Tom Morton, Vanessa Joan Müller, Wang Nanming, Paul O’Neill, Edgar Schmitz and Gemma Sharpe.
