In the publication Turning Inward, a selection of texts by international artists, critics and curators consider the impact of the technologically internalized capitalist system of networked power structures upon the production, distribution and consumption of contemporary art. Divided into three parts, the volume addresses the effects of globalization and the Internet on art, its political agency and the changing role of artists, artworks and art institutions. The second section focuses on Berlin’s shift from a politically and physically divided capital into a landscape of art and project spaces. A critical look at art history, curating and alternative methodologies comprises the third section. In conclusion, pioneering Iranian philosopher and theorist Reza Negarestani reflects on the transforming relationship between mind and world. Contributions by John Beeson, Svetlana Boym, Marta Dziewanska, Philipp Ekardt, Felix Ensslin, Orit Gat, David Joselit, William Kherbek, John Miller, Matteo Pasquinelli and Dieter Roelstraete.
