In Spike #72, we put the art world’s money launderers, tax evaders, forgers, and brutes on trial. But we don’t stop there. Our inquisitiveness leads us to bigger questions, like: Is “crime” only defined by its evil twin “justice?” Are our rights and wrongs only norms to be probed? How do we rewrite past injustices? But then, isn’t rupture needed for change? Is acting outside the law the only way to dream of a better world?
Grab a copy of “Art & Crime” and dirty your mind with the liberty of villains, Russian high rollers, the metaphysics of shoplifting, prison literature, fashion crimes, psychopaths, and more.
Featuring: Asco, Darja Bajagic, James Bridle, Tea Hacic-Vlahovic, Sam Kriss, Stéphane Mandelbaum, Arlette-Louise Ndakoze, Cady Noland, Brad Phillips, Tommaso Pincio & Francesco Tenaglia, Tobias Timm, and many more.
