How might a resistive art be imagined, despite it being enmeshed in the economic structures that need to be countered? What other knowledge, and what other communities, can art foster? What tools and weapons can it supply? This publication is focused on three projects ― independent and interwoven in equal measure ― which explore and newly survey, each in their own way, the relations between art, politics, and knowledge generation. The three exhibitions include: 'Unrest of Form: Imagining the Political Subject,' part of the Wiener Festwochen in Vienna and curated by Karl Baratta, Stefanie Carp, Matthias Pees, Hedwig Saxenhuber, and Georg Schöllhammer; 'Monday Begins on Saturday,' part of the Bergen Assembly and curated by Ekaterina Degot and David Riff; and 'Giving Form to the Impatience of Liberty,' at the Württembergischer Kunstverein Stuttgart and curated by Hans D. Christ and Iris Dressler.
