About the eBook:
This eBook, the sixth in the series of Blowup Readers released by V2_, explores the significance of the recent philosophic movements known as Object-Oriented Ontology and Speculative Realism for the visual and media arts. The ebook was edited in connection to the Speculative Realities exhibition.
Two artists and one collaborative duo were commissioned to make new artworks reflecting broadly on concepts within Object-Oriented Ontology and Speculative Realism. The artists were Tuur Van Balen & Revital Cohen, Cheryl Field, and Karolina Sobecka.
To supplement the descriptions of the works and brief interviews with the artists in this eBook, three new interviews were commissioned. Sven Lütticken was interviewed by Rachel O’Reilly, Jussi Parikka was interviewed by Michael Dieter, and Rick Dolphijn was interviewed by Michelle Kasprzak.

I was honoured to be a contributor to a new online publication, On Curating, an independent international web-journal focusing on questions around curatorial practice and theory, published by Dorothee Richter. For the inaugural issue, the editors asked thirty-one curators a series of questions around what topics in curating they would most like to see discussed, about key resources online, and about exhibitions and peers that have influenced them.
I’m also very pleased to be included in Decentre, the latest book to be released by YYZ Books. “decentre is a book about artist-run culture that hopes to describe the breadth and quality of artist-initiated programs, projects and events, the issues we face in this milieu and how effectively we deal with them, that aims to both celebrate artist-run culture and demonstrate the vital role artist-initiated activity plays in the larger cultural scene.” I wrote about the future of artist-run culture as it relates to digital media and audience development.
I know these “what MK has been doing elsewhere” posts are not the most interesting… but at the very least, they keep everyone up to date! Hopefully I’ll post another opinion piece soon.
