About Cultural Politics
This site is an archive of contemporary artist projects designed and produced for Cultural Politics (2005-2011).

Cultural Politics (ISSN: 1743-2197) is an international, refereed journal that explores the global character and effects of contemporary culture and politics. It analyzes how cultural identities, agencies and actors, political issues and conflicts, and global media are linked, characterized, examined and resolved. In doing so, the journal explores precisely what is cultural about politics and what is political about culture. It investigates the marginalized and outer regions of this complex and interdisciplinary subject area.
Each issue includes unique projects by visual artists that reflect contemporary cultural and political issues, solicited and edited by New York artist Joy Garnett (Arts Editor for Cultural Politics' first year of publication was the artist Louise K. Wilson). Currently in print are projects by Nancy Spero, Paul Chan, Zoe Leonard, Stephen Andrews, Julia Meltzer & David Thorne, Carrie Moyer, David Humphrey, Dominic McGill and others.
Cultural Politics is a welcome and innovative addition. In an academic universe already well populated with journals, it is carving out its own unique place—broad and a bit quirky. It likes to leap between the theoretical and the concrete, so that it is never boring and often filled with illuminating glimpses into the intellectual and cultural worlds. ~Lawrence Grossberg, University of North Carolina, USA.
