Edited by Rita Vitorelli
22 x 28 cm
Price: 70 lei
Spike's winter issue offers a painfully funny and personal look at the current state of the art world. Read what this nomadic tribe is doing when restrictions block the path to global jet-setting. From reflections about a new localism to the lurid fantasies of a reality TV show featuring art celebrities to wacky craft projects born out of boredom at home to thoughts about religion, poetry, and even protests. What some might call confession, Spike is calling therapy. A mix of inappropriate humour, debauchery, and weirdnes.
With essays by strategist Sean Monahan and curator Jeppe Ugelivig; profiles of the performance collective Young Boy Dancing Group, American Artist, Tabita Rezeire, and Keiken; an interview with Estonian artist Kris Lemsalu; texts by Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung, Qu Chang, Liam Gillick, Jos De Gruyter & Harald Thys, Iman Issa, Nicolette Polek, among many others.
