WdW Review is an online platform organized around several international desks; a series of texts centered on key moments in history; critical essays; and speculative image readings. Launched and published by Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, WdW Review aims to establish itself as a premier forum of intelligent and multi-disciplinary discussion on the humanities and their role at large, so as to find not a new, but a greater politics.

Building on its long history of framing and instigating debate, Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art presents WdW Review, a new online platform aimed at informing our ever-expanding spheres of action in an age of constant reformations be they aesthetic, geographic, economic, communal, ecological, and even spiritual. This project seeks to foster a new collegium of knowledge partners in a purpose-built infrastructure so as to address how the world is shaped today as a consequence, or in spite of national, international, and other group ideologies.
The structure of WdW Review is organized around four dedicated sections: The first takes the form of newspaper reports from several international editorial desks; the second, Sediments, is a space that looks at key moments in history from a variety of angles; the third is an open section for critical and speculative essays which are interwoven with Witte de With's program and related interests; the last section invites an author to consider a single image through a speculative piece of writing.
Our call for such an exchange comes at a time in which policies of economic austerity are pressuring the very resources (magazines, universities, public institutions, and so forth) that could propose alternatives to the threat of social bottlenecking. To loosen these restrictions, WdW Review aims to establish itself as a premier forum of intelligent and multi-disciplinary discussion on the humanities, and their role at-large, so as to find not a new, but a greater politics.
