‘Institutional critique’ is best known through the critical practice that developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s by artists who presented radical challenges to the museum and gallery system. Since then it has been pushed in new directions by new generations of artists registering and responding to the global transformations of contemporary life. The essays collected in this volume explore this legacy and develop the models of institutional critique in ways that go well beyond the field of art. Interrogating the shifting relations between ‘institutions’ and ‘critique’, the contributors to this volume analyze the past and present of institutional critique and propose lines of future development. Engaging with the work of philosophers and political theorists such as Michel Foucault, Judith Butler, Gilles Deleuze, Antonio Negri, Paolo Virno and others, these essays reflect on the mutual enrichments between critical art practices and social movements and elaborate the conditions for politicized critical practice in the twenty-first century.

 Today, at one and the same time, scholarly publishing is drawn in twodirections. On the one hand, this is a time of the most excitingtheoretical, political and artistic projects that respond to and seek tomove beyond global administered society. On the other hand, thepublishing industries are vying for total control of the ever-lucrativearena of scholarly publication, creating a situation in which the means ofdistribution of books grounded in research and in radical interrogationof the present are increasingly restricted. In this context, MayFlyBookshas been established as an independent publishing house, publishingpolitical, theoretical and aesthetic works on the question oforganization. MayFlyBooks publications are published under CreativeCommons license free online and in paperback. MayFlyBooks is a not-for-profit operation that publishes books that matter, not because theyreinforce or reassure any existing market.1.
