              This catalogue accompanies the eponymous exhibition at TBA21-Augarten in Vienna and brings together threads and voices of leading contemporary artists, scientists, and theoreticians exploring Cerith Wyn Evans's polyphonic oeuvre. A reality where matter meets dark matter, where th...e existence of a new elementary particle is conjured from theory--like an alternative world unlocked by psychotropic drugs--and results in the most complex experimental facilities ever built, brings us to the heart of Wyn Evans's new work at the Augarten, A Community Predicated on the Basic Fact Nothing Really Matters, but also figures as a conceptual model for the publication. CERN--the European Laboratory for Particle Physics--is devoted to the detection of a particle of the most labile and liminal nature, the Higgs boson. The Higgs is an afterthought, the materialization of wishful thinking: the Large Hadron Collider at CERN is constructed entirely on the fiction of a simulated projection of the missing particle whose necessity was postulated long before its discovery. A Community Predicated on the Basic Fact Nothing Really Matters centers on the Higgs on the one hand and the formula for LSD on the other, both containing the potential of generating new worlds.

              Liam Gillick (*1964, Aylesbury, United Kingdom) is one of the most prominent representatives of new developments in contemporary art. The title of his new publication Half a Complex refers to an interest in systems of development and production, suggesting a sense of deliberate i...ncompletion at the heart of the oeuvre. The distinct bodies of work reveal a self-conscious commentary on the conditions of production and reception that surround art today. Alongside the in-depth documentation of Gillick's various graphic works, fi lms, and exhibitions since 2008, the monograph features an extensive body of texts by Gillick who is also a prolifi c writer and critic of contemporary art.

Rather than focus on dominant works or special cases, Gillick takes a broad... view of artistic creation from 1820 to today, underscoring the industry and intelligence of artists as they have responded to incremental developments in science, politics, and technology.

              It is infuriating that most interesting artists are perfectly capable of functioning in at least two or three professions that are, unlike art, respected by society in terms of compensation and general usefulness. Furthermore, when the flexibility, certainty and freedom promised ...by being part of a critical outside are considered as extensions of recent advances in economic exploitation, does the field of art then become the uncritical, complicit inside of something far more compelling? This latest issue of e-flux journal addresses these important (though somewhat hostile) questions in the in-your-face style the journal is known for. Cover design by Liam Gillick.
