An essay first published in long form in The Journal of Visual Arts Practice, AntiHumanist Curating special issue, March 2011 entitled “Curatorial futures with the image: Overcoming scepticism and unbinding the relational” is edited and revised for this contribution for Eva International, The Irish Biennial of Art’s catalogue, 2015, curated by Bassam El Baroni.

The essay pays specific attention to the relationship between organizational power as a mode of curatorial affect and emancipatory political claims that are made by both curation and the art it manages and presents.
