Intangible Economies at Artists Space
February 7th, 2013

Fillip is pleased to announce a special launch event marking the release of Intangible Economies at Artists Space, New York, on February 7, 2013, at 7 pm. Join book editor Antonia Hirsch and contributors Candice Hopkins and Patricia Reed for an evening of presentations and discussion.

In this three-part presentation, Antonia Hirsch will provide an introduction to the ideas that animate the overall project; Patricia Reed will position ethics as based on a surplus, its politicity mobilized by what cannot be accounted for in current spheres of normativity; and Candice Hopkins will consider the conflicted history of the potlatch, a First Nations tradition that has been frequently idealized as a trope in contemporary art production.

Edited by Antonia Hirsch and published by Fillip, Intangible Economies addresses “economy” as a general system of exchange and speculatively investigates the role that “affective transactions” play in modes of representation and cultural production. Value, with its abstract and abstracting quality, becomes a fulcrum in this constellation, both in its functional role in a capitalist economy and in its relevance to an ethics.

The book contains a collection of essays by Juan A. Gaitán, Melanie Gilligan, Antonia Hirsch, Hadley+Maxwell, Candice Hopkins, Olaf Nicolai, Patricia Reed, Monika Szewczyk, and Jan Verwoert. It is the second title in Fillip’s Folio Series, which presents new and previously published writing by critics, artists, and curators that engages specific and recurring questions on international contemporary art.
