Online now. Idiot Wind: On the Rise of Right-Wing Populism in the US and Europe, and What It Means for Contemporary Art is a series of “reports” on recent right-wing populist movements and the possibilities for contemporary art in the face of these recent developments. A group of relevant artists were invited to contribute images to accompany these texts, and a still from a new video installation by Jennifer Hayashida and myself is featured in the text “Visits from the Future” by Melanie Gilligan. Other authors include Claire Bishop, Brian Holmes, Gregg Bordowitz, Hito Steyerl, Renée Green, Wendelien van Oldenborgh, and many others.
