Summary

This thought-provoking volume offers a critical reevaluation of the term foreclosure: it can refer not only to a forced eviction but also to processes of exclusiona shutting down of recognition, reflection, and debate. Through work in photography, film, video, installation, and performance, the seven artists represented in this volume (Kamal Aljafari, Yto Barrada, Tania Bruguera, Claude Closky, Harun Farocki, Allan Sekula, and David Shrigley) investigate the expanded meaning of foreclosure by reexamining the systems that have produced crises, instead of focusing on the aftermath. Four discerning essays from a team of international curators discuss foreclosure as both a generative concept and a curatorial strategy, allowing the text itself to become a platform for critique.
