Fillip 13 introduces Intangible Economies, a new, ongoing series broadening the notion of economy beyond its financial dimensions. The series focuses on the multifarious forms of exchange fuelled by affect and desire, speculatively investigating the fundamental role these affective transactions play in modes of representation and, accordingly, in cultural production.

This issue includes series texts by Candice Hopkins, Jan Verwoert, and series editor Antonia Hirsch. Forthcoming installments will include contributions by Hadley+Maxwell, Olaf Nicolai, and Monika Szewczyk, among others.

Also in Fillip 13:

Carson Chan: Measures of an Exhibition
Anthony Downey: Camps (or the Precarious Logic of Late Modernity)

Lisa Marshall: An Evidence Horizon

Haema Sivanesan: Producing Images in Times of War
Ryan Trecartin in conversation with Kristina Lee Podesva
Claire Tancons and Jesse McKee: On Carnival and Contractual Curating

The issue also features a record of The AAAARG Library, a site-specific installation commissioned for Fillip 13 and the 2010 NY Art Book Fair. The Library, produced by artist Sean Dockray and curated by Jeff Khonsary, will be presented again this summer as part of Night Market, a Red76 project for the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in North Adams, MA.

Article: What Now for the Arts in the Economic Downturn?

Arts and Business, London
2008

“On the 18 September 2008, The Financial Times published an article highlighting that arts sponsorship budgets are relatively safe in the short term but the longer term picture is troubling.  This piece was based on a survey of businesses conducted by Arts & Business in August this year.

If you would like a snapshot of the results then please click here. If you want an in-depth analysis of the survey results, download A&B’s research on Business Investment in Culture Trends 2008 – Will the credit crunch affect this? (PDF 715KB) *Please note, this research was conducted in August 2008, before the collapse of the Lehman Brothers, the Iceland Banks and other indicators of the financial crisis unravelling in the UK and internationally.”
