Release of the New Existentialism by Tim Griffin

The New Existentialism, a book edited and prefaced by Tim Griffin, is now available. It grew from the eponymous conference organized as part of ART², an international platform for contemporary art, initiated by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in 2014. On April 26, 2014, at The Kitchen in New York City, the New Existentialism conference gathered groundbreaking French and American thinkers, around topics of art, philosophy and society. 

Find in the book the contributions from the French and American symposium participants: Emily Apter, Patricia Falguieres, Tristan Garcia, Patrice Maniglier. Tim Griffin also invited Matthew Ritchie, a British artist based in New York City to write an essay.

The New York Series of publications was created collaboratively in 2014 by Les presses du réel and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in New York, with the goal of producting theoretical texts in English on contemporary art and dance, and on emerging American performance art as it relates to French thought.
