CuMMA Disputes is a forum publishing short texts about current topics in art and politics. It functions as a space for offsetting new discussions and for reflection on issues that require further unpacking. It is dedicated to intersections between curatorial debates, cultural policies and aesthetic, activist and/or theoretical questions. Texts are published sporadically, according to when a topic or a debate seems urgent.
