In the light of the recent crash in the global financial system, this issue of Printed Project takes a timely look at the notion of ‘circulation’ — not only circulation of goods, bodies, knowledge, ideas, images and money, i.e. the movement of certain forms — but also, and maybe more so, an idea of circulation as a form in itself.

Curator/editor Katya Sander has taken her cue from a number of recent sociologists and anthropologists, who have sought to understand and describe the market “as one form of circulation central to western imaginary of modernity”. As Sander notes “along with the market as one such matrix for western modernity, the notion of the public sphere and the idea of the nation state can also be understood as seminal forms of circulation for western modernity and the ways in which it is understood and imagined.”
