Run by the artist Rita Vitorelli, Spike is a contemporary art magazine publishing vigorous, independent, and meaningful criticism. For this issue it turns to couples in the art world, asking, “what happens when we are mirrored in another half: partners, muses, rivals, soul mates, mind-lovers, or imaginary online girlfriends.”


In this issue:


  • What is love beyond love?
  • Hans-Jürgen Hafner on art world soul mates and social climbers
  • How to couple if the self doesn’t exist?
  • And what happens when one half of the couple gets more of the spotlight?
