Cluster: Dialectionary


Edited by Binna Choi, Maria Lind, Emily Pethick and Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez



Compiled after a series of meetings in each organisation over a period of two years, Cluster: Dialectionary aims to find new ways to position this work and the work of contemporary visual arts organisations more broadly, particularly in relation to wider social, political and cultural concerns.

The book includes essays by Andrea Phillips, Mark Fisher and Nina Möntmann, Marion von Osten, and Cluster members. These are accompanied by a series of keywords that are drawn from the practices and experiences of the people who work at, visit, and live with the organisations. They have both been produced within the contexts of the projects that gave rise to them, as well as written especially for the publication, and include contributions by Can Altay, Ayreen Anastas and Rene Gabri, Ricardo Basbaum, Céline Condorelli, Cooperativa Crater Invertido, Daniel Foucard, Rebecca Gordon-Nesbitt, Elaine W. HO, Annette Krauss, Mattin, Dimitrina Sevova, Simon Sheikh and Steven Ten Thije.
