For Kraus, art is something that happens when flows of ideas and images come together in a place people make together, usually somewhere out of the way a bit. There could be some struggle involved. Some of the people might be fuck-ups (ditto the ideas, images, etc). She has a finely tuned radar for the political economy of art worlds, which is a distinctive hum in the background of the otherwise well oiled machine of the prose. While not ignorant (or faux ignorant) of the Artworld, there's a certain studied indifference to it. What matters in the long run is whether art is a rubric under which somebody did something interesting; for, with or to anybody else. If they made a living off it without being assholes about it, well good luck to them, but that's a tangential story. So in this book we get post-post-punk angelinos, sex worker art works, a tribute to an artist who sailed away off the edge of the world. There's also Bernadette Corp at Green Naftali (tres chic!) but only because they are interesting...So if any of those things are of interest, buy this book when it comes out. -- McKenzie Wark

Über den Autor

Chris Kraus is a filmmaker and the author of I Love Dick and Aliens & Anorexia, and coeditor of Hatred of Capitalism: A Semiotext(e) Reader.

"Chris Kraus [is] one of our smartest and most original writers on contemporary art and culture." -- Holland Cotter, The New York Times "ArtsBeat" "Writer and filmmaker Chris Kraus is searingly aware of the discourse in which she functions, and transforms it into something redolent of Simone Weil's poeticism and its daunting theoretical undercurrents." -- Bookforum "Kraus's text is not a collective call to arms, but an incitement to find art, to read in a heroic way, and to create a moment -- as an individual or within a group -- where one's relationship to the past is dictated only by the chance nature of what the present has thrown at you." -- Glasgow Review of Books "Chris Kraus's nuanced approach is akin to a cultural anthropologist who considers creativity in its natural habitats, the spaces where art comes into being." -- The Millions "In Where Art Belongs, art theory becomes political philosophy: art matters insofar as it remains a practice, not a product. For Kraus, such practice is a means for establishing a way of life outside accepted capitalist conventions." -- Aliina Astrova, Kaleidoscope "[A] super fascinating thing in this book is an essay called 'Indelible Video'... This essay is a total milestone...'Indelible Video' is so fascinating and consequential that it can't be summarized here, however it is way worth the price of the book." -- Jon Leon, www.agioteurs.com "Chris Kraus [is] one of our smartest and most original writers on contemporary art and culture." Holland Cotter The New York Times "ArtsBeat"
