Christoph Behnke, Cornelia Kastelan, Valerie Knoll & Ulf Wuggenig (Eds.)
The result of four years of collaborative work out of the Leuphana University, Lüneburg, Germany, this dense and fascinating reader employs complexity and network theory and analysis to visualize the structure and dynamics of 2,000 years of cultural fields and markets (600 BC–2011). By dividing it into four sections— Affect, Attachment & Passion; The Return of History; Art, Ecology & Sustainability; and Art, Values & Markets—the four editors, Christoph Behnke, Cornelia Kastelan, Valérie Knoll and Ulf Wuggenig, have assembled an extraordinary series of essays and in-depth conversations exploring the various effects of culturally fertile and dynamic urban centers and peripheries created by the migration patterns of artists and intel- lectuals over time throughout Europe and North America. Over 70 contributors, including critics, artists, scientists, curators and theorists along with visual documents from related exhibitions make up this massive study. Featured artists include Jose- phine Meckseper, Karl Holmqvist, Angela Bulloch along with many more.
