NERO is an international publishing house devoted to art, criticism and contemporary culture. Founded in Rome in 2004, it publishes artists’ books, catalogs, editions and essays.
NERO explores present and future imaginaries beyond any field of specialization, format or code – as visual arts, music, philosophy, politics, aesthetics or fictional narrations – extensively investigating unconventional perspectives and provocative outlooks to decipher the essence of this ever changing reality.
was founded in London in 2002 by artists and theorists Anjalika Sagar and Kodwo Eshun. The term “Otolith” is named after an organ located inside the ear that enables humans to sense motion and gravity as they move in space. The Otolith Group operates as a platform for research and dialogue, while challenging the vertical divisions between the real and the imagined, history and fiction. Inspired by traditions of collective filmmaking, Sagar and Eshun integrate moving image with audio, image, text, installation, and curation to convey imaginations of futures engendered by the histories and presences of global African and Asian diasporas.
