Next Spring is an occasional series of reviews that calls for a slightly shifted approach to the writing of art criticism. The artwork, and the political climate to which it is a part of, are viewed as subjects that needn’t necessarily be documented evidently—questioning if this is at all possible—rather art writing is seen as being in correspondence with these issues. Emphasis is placed on reading atmospheric affects (of contemporary states of ecological thinking broadly speaking), the mood (of the polis) you may say, those climatical residues that the work engenders and the text offers.
The language of place is given priority and image reproductions used nominally.
The Next Spring series continues as a response to the lived spaces of the collective.
