    Understanding Hybrid Identities: From Mechanical Models to Complex Systems.Nikos Papastergiadis - 2010 - World Futures 66 (3-4):243 – 265.
    This article examines the use of organic and mechanistic metaphors that have underpinned the modeling of national governance in the social sciences and also framed the representation of the social impact of migration. It argues that the global patterns of migration and the contemporary forms of hybrid subjectivity do not fit well with these conceptual frameworks. The limits of this framework are examined through Harald Kleinschmidt's theory of residentialism, and the outlines of an alternative conceptual frame is proposed by drawing (...)

    A Breathing Space for Aesthetics and Politics: An Introduction to Jacques Rancière.Nikos Papastergiadis - 2014 - Theory, Culture and Society 31 (7-8):5-26.
    Jacques Rancière is one of the central figures in the contemporary debates on aesthetics and politics. This introduction maps the shift of focus in Rancière’s writing from political theory to contemporary art practice and also traces the enduring interest in ideas on equality and creativity. It situates Rancière’s rich body of writing in relation to key theorists such as the philosopher Alain Badiou, art historian Terry Smith and anthropologist George E. Marcus. I argue that Rancière offers a distinctive approach in (...)

  3. Wars of Mobility.Nikos Papastergiadis - 2010 - European Journal of Social Theory 13 (3):343-361.
    In the aftermath of 9/11, world leaders addressed the nation as a body under threat and hastened in new policies to bolster border protection and ‘securitize’ immigration. While the terrorist attacks cast new forms of public attention on the risks posed by mobile agents, the link between national security and regulating migration has always been at the forefront of the constitution of the nation state. Despite this persistent anxiety towards the social impact of migration and the status of people on (...)

    The Invasion Complex in Australian Political Culture.Nikos Papastergiadis - 2004 - Thesis Eleven 78 (1):8-27.
    The political and social reaction to the ‘refugee crisis’ in Australia cannot be solely understood in purely geo-political or economic terms. Neither can the persistence of racism in Australian political culture be explained in terms of its electoral advantage. This article contends that the racist attitudes of the Australian Liberal Government, and John Howard in particular, hide deeper unconscious processes that are historically embedded in the national imaginary. These unconscious processes are manifested in the invasion complex which lies just below (...)

    What Is the South?Nikos Papastergiadis - 2010 - Thesis Eleven 100 (1):141-156.
    The idea of the South has a long history. In the recent past it has been revived as a possible frame for representing the cultural context of not just regions that are geographically located in the South, but also those that share a common post-colonial heritage. In this essay I explore the affinities and tensions between the South and parallel terms such as Third World and Antipodes. I argue that the South can extend the existing debates on cross-cultural exchange, and (...)

    Assemblies in Art and Politics: An Interview with Jacques Rancière.Nikos Papastergiadis & Charles Esche - 2014 - Theory, Culture and Society 31 (7-8):27-41.
    This interview was conducted on 8 October 2011 at the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven. It was held during a symposium that reflected on the work of Rancière and was a part of a broader engagement with the concept of autonomy and its relation to art organized by an umbrella group of universities and arts organizations under the name of ‘The Autonomy Project’. A number of the symposium’s participants – Peter Osborne, Gerald Raunig, Isabell Lorey, Ruth Sondregger, Kim Mereiene and Adrian Martin (...)

    Mega Screens for Mega Cities.Nikos Papastergiadis, Scott McQuire, Xin Gu, Amelia Barikin, Ross Gibson, Audrey Yue, Sun Jung, Cecelia Cmielewski, Soh Yeong Roh & Matt Jones - 2013 - Theory, Culture and Society 30 (7-8):325-341.
    This article considers how networked large urban screens can act as a platform for the creation of an experimental transnational public sphere. It takes as a case study a specific Australia-Korea cultural event that linked large screens in Federation Square, Melbourne, and Tomorrow City, Incheon, 1 through the presentation of SMS-based interactive media art works. The article combines theoretical analyses of global citizenship, mobility, digital technologies, and networked public space with empirical analyses of audience response research data collected during the (...)

    Nikos Papastergiadis: The Cultures Of The South As Cosmos.Nikos Papastergiadis - 2017 - Nordic Journal of Aesthetics 25 (52).
    As the Global South is increasingly interpenetrated by neo-liberal and authoritarian regimes the idea of the South as a site of emancipatory resistance and exotic cultural difference has ended. This article offers an alternative route into the cultures of the South. It focuses on the shifting forms of the South in contemporary visual art and outlines the possibilities of non-coercive forms of cultural exchange and the cartographies of a cosmopolitanism from below. This perspective on the South is most evident in (...)

    Thomas Hirschhorn and Jacques Rancière: Artists and Philosophers as Companions in the Love of the Infinitude of Thought.Nikos Papastergiadis - 2014 - Theory, Culture and Society 31 (7-8):97-100.
    Thomas Hirschhorn is an artist who has maintained an engaged approach to politics. His method of working is collaborative and speculative. It has a strong emphasis on community development and intellectual reflection. In this brief introduction I focus on the Bijlmer Spinoza Festival and his ongoing relationship and response to the ideas of the philosopher Jacques Rancière.

    Hybridity and Ambivalence.Nikos Papastergiadis - 2005 - Theory, Culture and Society 22 (4):39-64.
    Today the movement of ideas, capital and people is faster and wilder than at any point in history. Globalization has made the world more interconnected. The flows of traffic in this new network have not only accelerated to new levels, but the directions of movement have multiplied and abandoned the well-worn paths. The cultural dynamics of globalization have presented new challenges to the existing models for explaining the forms of belonging and the patterns of exchange that are occurring in the (...)

    Glimpses of Cosmopolitanism in the Hospitality of Art.Nikos Papastergiadis - 2007 - European Journal of Social Theory 10 (1):139-152.
    Cosmopolitanism has been used as a concept to open the horizons for being in the world. This article re-thinks the philosophical and political dimensions of cosmopolitanism by relating them to the new collaborative practices by artists. The concepts of agency and community will be grounded in a critical examination of the networking strategies and the practice of hospitality that have been cultivated by artistic collectives such as Stalker. The aim of this article is to ‘rescue’ the account of artistic practice (...)
