Dear Koert,
I'm a writer based in Los Angeles.
I want to keep you in the loop of an Art Book/World-class Anthology worth your attention and support. The title is: THE NEXT THING: ART IN THE 21st CENTURY and it bring together a dream-team of artists and theorists from all over the world, all attempting to anticipate the art of the future and the sensibility that will define our times.
The book will come out later this year by Fairleigh Dickinson U. Press
Below I’m pasting the index of titles so you can have a better sense of the contributors and their themes most of them working in a middle ground between art and science, cultural theory and counter-culture, philosophy and fiction.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
