launch of nonsite.org, Emory sponsored online journal (with an art historical slant)
Feb. 11, 2011 is the official launch date of www.nonsite.org , a quarterly journal of art, philosophy and politics affiliated with Emory University. It is edited by Jennifer Ashton, Todd Cronan, Michael Fried, Oren Izenberg, Brian Kane, Ruth Leys, Walter Benn Michaels, Charles Palermo, Robert Pippin, and Victoria Scott.
www.nonsite.org emerges in part out of interest in a set of theoretical topics – the ontology of the work of art, the question of intentionality, the imperative to historicize, the ongoing appeal of different and sometimes competing materialisms – and in part out of opposition to the dominant accounts of those topics.
Today, the various theoretical forms of neoliberalism – from the postmodern to the posthuman, from the new historicism to the new pluralism – have become so pervasive that they are nearly invisible. www.nonsite.org seeks first to make them visible and then to make them less pervasive. Our goal is to criticize what is and replace it with what we think ought to be.
