Esp Cultural Magazine 2: The Glitch In The Art System
An amalgamation of many hopes, ESP magazine alludes to our sixth sense, the 1965 Miles Davis album of the same name, and remains a space for Whole Earth Citizens. Designed by Experimental Jet Set, the second issue explores the art world under the global pandemic, through the notion of the “glitch” as a positive concept to liberate, rock, and agitate a rigid aristocratic system in which art has traditionally been market-driven and US-centric. Essays, reviews, and special features by Marina Abramović, Olafur Eliasson, Michael Xufu Huang, Manthia Diawara, and Hans Ulrich Obrist all contribute to essential questions: Who is art for, nowadays? How has the pandemic shaken the old order?
