Austrian Cultural Forum New York
Following Artforum’s practice in contemporary art, Bookforum provides coverage by and about the world’s best writers, including Germaine Greer, Salman Rushdie, Don DeLillo, Billy Collins, and Claire Messud, with contributions by such scholars as Morris Dickstein, Marjorie Perloff, Jeffrey Frank, Gershom Gorenberg, and Richard Wolin.
The pieces in Bookforum are about what’s possible in writing and publishing. That has made it a magazine worth waiting for, issue by issue, and a magazine where writers feel they’ve missed a bet if, issue by issue, they are not in its pages.—Greil Marcus
From fiction to philosophy, politics to the arts, each issue of Bookforum will captivate you. Learn from Pulitzer Prize—winning historian William S. McFeely how the US relinquished its commitment to equality, or why, according to leading Shakespeare biographer James Shapiro, the "Shakespeare Wars" never got started. And find out why Richard Powers may be our brainiest novelist.

The Invisible Dog Art Center
The Invisible Dog, a new three-story art center in Brooklyn, is an exuberant example of the integration of forward thinking with respectful care for the past. The art center, admittedly, has a leg up: its home came equipped with an irresistible history. Built in the late nineteenth century, the 30,000 square-foot factory went through a number of industrial incarnations before its owners struck gold in the 1970s with the “invisible dog” trick: a stiff leash and collar surrounding the empty space where a dog would be.
The Invisible Dog has been restored for safety and has been cleaned, but otherwise preserved intact. The rawness of the unfinished space is integral to The Invisible Dog's identity: Lucien Zayan, founder and director, wanted a place where artists could feel free to create and get inspired.
The ground floor, with its 14-foot ceilings, is used for public events, performances, educations programs, and exhibitions, produced by The Invisible Dog and guest curators from around the world.
The second floor is divided into art studios, all occupied by carefully selected artists.
The third floor, luminous and spacious, was designed by Anne Attal and is available for flexible rental by the general public for private events or exhibitions, performances, festival...
The basement space is for live performance

Les Subsistances is an international 'research laboratory’ dedicated to artistic creation and new forms of performing arts (dance, theatre, circus, etc.) as well as a multidisciplinary working space in which to work, experiment, create, and develop a dialogue with the audience.
They offer artists a space and a period of residency, and intellectual, administrative, technical and financial support relevant to each project.
They offer the public a space and a time in which to share artistic endeavours. They facilitate the exchange of ideas and thoughts, promote artistic practice and dialogues, and invent new forms of meetings by involving the audience in each and every step, through project development, debates, public rehearsals, creative WeekEnds and workshops with the artists.
