Mix & Stir – New Outlooks on Contemporary Art from Global Perspectives
art, books/catalogs, theory
Mix & Stir presents new outlooks on contemporary art from global perspectives, in the challenging format of a cookery book. It intends to encourage studying art beyond national constraints, cultural dominances, and hierarchies: a voyage similar to that of culinary discovery. The book brings a variety of tastes and flavours to the table, and breaks new ground by allowing innovative, contrary, queer, idiosyncratic practices and discourses, theories and topics, methods, and concerns to access art in its global dimensions.
Researchers, curators and artists with a special interest in this topical issue were invited to present, develop, outline, and contemplate compelling frames of reference, both theoretical and artistic, in order to arrive at a true ‘world art studies’. Their contributions are structured in seven thematic fields: Spectatorship, Collectives, Circulations, Exhibitions, Artists at Work, Postcolonial Perspectives, and Deep Art History.
The reader is invited to explore the vast supply of dishes, to taste and test the aromas and to feast.
