The relationship between celebration and critical practices in art, around Jeff Koons, Pierre Huyghe, Ben Kinmont, Tom Marioni, John Armleder...
Trouble was a French magazine published between 2002 and 2007, run by art critics, theoreticians, and artists (Boris Achour, Guillaume Désanges, Claire Jacquet, François Piron, and Émilie Renard). A clear critical and artistic point of view has emerged from the six issues published, seen in the choice of the authors, artists and themes that have been broached. These choices – posing points of view that are sometimes contradictory but always strongly subjective, correspond to the image of today's creation that interests us: moving, radical, and plural. In giving artists' texts a lot of space, Trouble encourages them to develop critical and theoretical positions beyond their own work, and in giving critics a space for experimental writing, Trouble opens new forms of art criticism and encourages subjective historical re-readings and new perspectives. Trouble neither comments on current events nor takes the market into consideration; it looks at the art that is being made today and wants to be an active part of it.
