"On Horizons: A Critical Reader in Contemporany Art" explores the theoretical notion of the horizon and the linkage between contemporary art and political imagination. The horizon is commonly taken to be the 'line' demarcating that which is beyond reach, obscured, or declared impossible by the dominant order. But could the horizon be recharged --via artistic and political imaginaries- with potentially liberating significance?. A diverse range of speculative new texts by artists, philosophers, theorists, and art historians examine the genealogy of the horizon in philosophy and art, explore how today’s neoliberal hegemony has been produced at the expense of a loss of a horizon of change and difference, and consider how art works and exhibitions set up certain horizons and thus partake in the production of the political.
