Because this month I had the honor of acting as Guest Editor for the Critics Page, where I invited global curators and scholars to contribute a word theyd like to see or never see again in the discourse around art and technology, I thought I would develop this months column around the words that artists use and encounter about their practiceacross media. So I asked them what silly, uncomfortable, or productive term they encountered. It could be something said to them or something they say to themselves. Leaving aside the linguistic debates around performative utterances, words act around art as a network of ideas, a system if you will, or a kind of scatterplot of imaginative relations.

Georg Büchner was a rising star in Germanys 19th century literary scene. A prolific and thought-provoking writer, he was a counterculturalist whose life was cut short; he died at age 23. Two centuries later, writer Sam Kahn explores Büchners impact, and how he may be the missing link in the history of theater.
