Contributions by Steve Bishop, Orit Gat, Anna Gritz, Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing, Gary Zhexi Zhang. The publication Deliquescing accompanies Steve Bishop’s 2018–19 solo exhibition at KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, including video stills as well as photo documentation of the installation.
An interview between the artist and curator Anna Gritz is featured alongside essays by Gary Zhexi Zhang on a computer program that functions as an archive of “lists of lists”; Orit Gat on her exchanges with Bishop about the phobia of time, jazz standards, and the emotional weight of kitsch; and Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing on the foreign-borne diseases that plague native tree cultures.
