We are very happy to announce the issue of On_Culture on Critique as a concept for the study of culture.
It deals with conceptualizations of critique in a variety of ways, beginning with Mitchum Huehls’s _Essay, which historicizes the transition from critique to postcritique by way of Michel Foucault’s concept of governmentality and with special attention to the function and power of norms.
Four peer-reviewed _Articles examine critique in greater detail, dealing with the surprising connections between the works of Robert Walser and Bruno Latour (Gormsen Schmidt), the contemporariness of 'critical composition' (Wolf), queer video games as critical method (Rivers) and the performance of political critique by a German/international brass ensemble (Müller).
In a unique _Perspective with an abundance of photographic examples, the photo series Climate Vortex Sutra by David Benjamin Sherry and a queer ecological reading of the work takes center stage (Klaassen).
