Product Description

Spike #61 Autumn 2019

The desire to get away from it all pervades every aspect of our lives. Artists are leaving art capitals and even fleeing the art world entirely, just to find themselves right back where they started. We’re being grabbed by the claws of the art market and crashing into the limits of artistic autonomy. We need a way out. Outside of the confines of the art world, too, there’s much we want to evade, like death, depression, taxes, and our own success. But where does escape end and escapism begin? Could we think of escape as a battle cry, a rejection of terms, and a mode of non-compliance? With so many things to run from, but not so many places to run to, Spike is getting the hell out of here.

Q/A FABRICE STROUN
Is escapism the death of art?

ESSAY: EXITS
Some people want to escape into the art world, others want to escape from it. Art offers a refuge from the world as well as a way of engaging with it – politically, socially, aesthetically, philosophically. The challenge is to find a way to escape without escapism. By João Ribas

FASHION
Fashion has built a trap for itself. The most contemporary medium may still pride itself on being ahead of the curve, but it has fallen prey to a totalised corporate capitalist realism that is closing the door on a new generation. Where will it go with its need to rebel and experiment? By Jeppe Ugelvig

Q/A AUBREY DE GREY
Will we ever escape mortality?

MARKET
Biennials are out, freeports are in. The one percent loves storage solutions that allow them to squirrel away art without the burden of taxation. The best artworks are coming soon to a freeport near you, but you won’t be allowed to see them unless you can wheel and deal or pay to play. By Kenny Schachter

Is migration the only really successful revolution?
