Spike

"Founded by the artist Rita Vitorelli in 2004, Spike is a contemporary art magazine, online platform and event space. The flagship print magazine Spike Art Quarterly is aimed at sustaining a vigorous, independent and meaningful art criticism. Essays by leading critics and curators are complemented by other formats offering room for polemics, meditations, and short answers to urgent questions. Published four times a year, Spike offers its readers both intimacy and immediacy through an unusually open editorial approach that is not afraid of controversy and provocation. The event space Spike Berlin has become known for heated round-table discussions and high-profile talks, while Spike Online features up-to-the-minute reports, interviews, and photo essays from around the world."

“The Family”

Spike 50 is all about the family: as structure, model, metaphor, as place of origin and point of no return. Do we need to save the family, or to destroy it? Do lines of descent still make sense for artists, or have networks taken their place? From the queer family to the nuclear family, from the commune to neopatriarchy, it lives on in many forms – even in the family of an art magazine.
