Art and ContemporaryCritical Practice
Gerald Raunig and Gene Ray (eds)
‘Institutional critique’ is best known through the critical practicethat developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s by artists who pre-sented radical challenges to the museum and gallery system. Sincethen 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 thislegacy and develop the models of institutional critique in ways thatgo well beyond the
eld of art. Interrogating the shifting relationsbetween ‘institutions’ and critique’, the contributors to this volumeanalyze the past and present of institutional critique and proposelines of future development. Engaging with the work of philoso-phers and political theorists such as Michel Foucault, Judith Butler,Gilles Deleuze, Antonio Negri, Paolo Virno and others, these es-says re
ect on the mutual enrichments between critical art practicesand social movements and elaborate the conditions for politicizedcritical practice in the twenty-
rst 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.
