The beginnings of an article about political timing specific art - a term taken from artist Tania Bruguera to describe a way of working at high speed, in response to current affairs, with an interventionist mentality. Published in the May issue of Artforum, with a somewhat disappointing layout and choice of photos. In my view the piece needs to be pushed further, and broadened out to encompass more examples of what political timing specific interventions might look like in the US.
This isn't really a blog, more of an online archive of my publications, articles, talks, conferences, and so on. For pdfs of my writing, see my page at academia.edu
