Site nr 1/2

SITE indicates a kind of indeterminacy, which perhaps is what characterizes the contemporary moment more than anything else -- an indeterminacy concerning the relations among the arts and their respective borders; concerning the relation among art, philosophy, and politics; concerning the very sense of what we persist in calling "tradition." Site is a place and a space yet to be determined -- the site can also be a non-site, concepts which pass over into each other, as Robert Smithson once contended. And what precisely are our modern spaces and sites -- zones of transit, passage, relay? To this, the "sites" of electronic space add yet another dimension, and what it is that actually constitutes the "site" of the work, of action, and of expression seems more uncertain than ever before.

The first issue of SITE deals with choreography, the body, and space; and contains, among other things, an interview with Jens Hoffmann, who was involved in the dance and theater program at documenta x; a "self-interview" with Xavier Le Roy, in which he talks about one of his central works, Extensions; as well as reports from the art scenes in Bangkok and Berlin.

This issue also contains two thematic sections. The first presents aspects of the work of Margaretha Åsberg, one of Sweden's most influential choreographers, and emphasizes in particular her collaboration with artists. The second brings together lectures and debates from the symposium, "No One Has Yet Determined What The Body Can Do," held at Art Node in Stockholm in June, 2001, and explores the connections between modern biology and the philosophical tradition, drawing especially on the thought of Spinoza, Nietzsche, and Foucault.

The second issue, which came out in March, 2002, deals with problems and developments in contemporary architecture and urbanism. It contains, among other things, the very first English-language presentation of the research group CERFI (Centre d'Etudes et de Formation Industrielles), led by Félix Guattari from the late 60's and into the mid 70's, which was an extraordinarily fertile ground for new developments in the theory of urbanism and public institutions, and where concepts developed by Guattari, Deleuze, and Foucault were used for the first time to analyze the contemporary cityscape.
