Please join us for the New York launch of the first print issue of e-flux Index, featuring presentations by e-flux contributor Christian Nyampeta and editors Serubiri Moses and Juliana Halpert. Julieta Aranda, Brian Kuan Wood, Hallie Ayres, and Anton Vidokle will introduce the evening.

e-flux Index is a new print journal surveying the breadth of contemporary culture through e-flux’s publishing on art, theory, architecture, film, criticism, activism, and art education. Published bimonthly, it interweaves long-form essays from e-flux Journal and e-flux Architecture, exhibition and book reviews from e-flux Criticism, discussions and contributions from both established and emerging voices in e-flux Education, and texts that expand the register of critical inquiry from e-flux Notes, compiling all the diverse and fascinating content commissioned by e-flux under one cover.

e-flux began its online publishing 25 years ago, in an era largely dominated by a handful of print periodicals. Since then, the publishing landscape has undergone a profound shift to a digital realm, which provides unprecedented access at the expense of ever-diminishing attention and memory. As a collectible and archivable bimonthly print volume drawing out new strains of cross-disciplinary knowledge to reveal the common concerns that unite today’s most vital and inquisitive writing, e-flux Index sets out to catalog and care for art’s historical and intellectual evolution in our own time—and for the future.

Christian Nyampeta will speak about recent contributions across e-flux, including his ongoing African Film Institute project, a screening series dedicated to African cinema that premiered at e-flux’s Screening Room in September 2023. Serubiri Moses, a contributing editor, will present upcoming projects that will form a thematic issue of e-flux Journal, while editor Juliana Halpert will give insights into e-flux Education’s editorial scope vis-à-vis the vast network of art practice and curatorial programs operating today.

e-flux Index is meta-edited by George MacBeth and designed by Remco van Bladel, with layout by Sixing Xu.

e-flux Index is available to purchase from, as well as in person at the launch. The first issue of e-flux Index is 420 pages and printed in full color by Maiadouro, with print design from Atelier d’Alves.

This program is co-presented by Dia Art Foundation and e-flux.

Christian Nyampeta is an artist, filmmaker, and researcher living in New York, and working in London, the Netherlands, and Rwanda where he convenes the Nyanza Working Group of the Another Roadmap African Cluster.

Nyampeta holds a PhD in Visual Cultures from Goldsmiths, University of London, completed under the supervision of Kodwo Eshun, following the examination of Leela Gandhi and Denise Ferreira da Silva.
