SPECIAL ISSUE: "Art and the Commons: Tract, Circuit, Sphere"

full name / name of organization: 
ASAP/Journal: The Scholarly Journal of the Association for the Study of the Arts of the Present
contact email: 
editors_asap@press.jhu.edu



This special issue of the new ASAP/Journal investigates how the notion of a “commons” has formed or is forming theories and production of post-1960s literary, performing, visual, and media art. Critical theory has addressed the notion of a commons through concepts such as “the multitude,” the “affectsphere,” “the ecosphere,” and “open source”--all having implications for how a commons may potentially be constructed or annihilated in various arenas of contemporary social life. Yet what other forms of theoretical and/or enacted contact with the commons do the literary, visual, and performing arts present? For example, in the visual arts, “relational aesthetics” and “participatory art” controversially align themselves with commons construction, while electronic literature often cites digital commons' relationality, queer aesthetics offers new conceptual commons, and hip hop remix challenges anti-commons aesthetics; likewise, various Occupy movements as well as international liberation movements find art performance central to enunciating commons politics. New definitions of contemporary art periodization—such as planetarity, cosmodernism, altermodernism, geoculture, info-aesthetics—often quote commons' logics. The question is, then, this: How do the post-1960s arts portray, or construct, or deconstruct, our notions about the commons and extend the commons beyond its earlier social territories and meanings?

This "Art and the Commons" issue, edited by Amy J. Elias, explores how the contemporary arts relate to, develop, contest, or modify conversations about "the commons." The issue title plays on various forms (prose tracts, sound tracks, media circuitry, sculpted spheres) and locations (plotted space, rhizomatic space, psychic space, planetary space) associated with art’s interplay with the commons.
