Spike is a contemporary art magazine run by artist Rita Vitorelli. It is aimed at sustaining vigorous, independent, and meaningful art criticism.
In this issue: In Art & Crime, we put the art world’s money launderers, tax evaders, forgers, and brutes on trial. But we don’t stop there. Our inquisitiveness leads us to bigger questions, like: Is “crime” only defined by its evil twin “justice?” Are our rights and wrongs only norms to be probed? How do we rewrite past injustices? But then, isn’t rupture needed for change? Is acting outside the law the only way to dream of a better world?
Featuring: Asco, Darja Bajagic, James Bridle, Tea Hacic-Vlahovic, Sam Kriss, Stéphane Mandelbaum, Arlette-Louise Ndakoze, Cady Noland, Brad Phillips, Tommaso Pincio & Francesco Tenaglia, Tobias Timm, and many more.
