In this volume of selected essays, interviews, curatorial texts and reviews, spanning 1986-2012, Joshua Decter examines contemporary art in relation to its various ideological, public, discursive, and social contexts. The book encompasses seven chapters: «Institutional Critique® and its Discontents»; «Aporia (art as politics, the politics of art)»; «Everything is Social»; «Convoluted Cities»; «The (Un)De-definition of Art»; «What Do We Want from Exhibitions?»; and «On the Curatorial Road.» The author unpacks art’s paradoxical condition: art problematizes, and is intrinsically a problem. From this standpoint, he analyzes art’s definitions, functions, ethical entanglements, societal aspirations and cultural contradictions.
