Artforum and the Story of Critique

May 29, 2019

Tobi Haslett

Artforum is the leading international contemporary art publication. Each issue writes the history of our visual culture, and demonstrates how art is the most iconic measure of what’s urgent in the here and now. In this conversation, Editor-in-chief David Velasco, sits down with contributing writer Tobi Haslett to explore what role a magazine like Artforum can play in structuring our resistance to power. Together, they discuss this moment in artistic production and the value of art criticism today.
