Product description

Review

Developing his argument via an array of paradigmatic cases of contemporary political art, Watson reclaims arts power to defrost the numbness, alienation and endless delay of the decisive moment of struggle imposed on us by various apparatuses of contemporary power and financial capitalism. The comparison of political subjectivity and freedom with Duchamps readymade is one of the original insights of the book. Arts capacity to produce, or, in Watsons words, to reclaim our subjectivity through an act of creative imagination, here and now, points to some potential ways out of the contemporary political and aesthetic impasse. --Alexei Penzin (Chto Delat?)

By Dorian Batycka - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Thoughtful, critical and prescient. Watson's analysis of contemporary art--conditional to specters of social class--connect threads ranging from conceptualism, socially engaged art, institutional critique, and dada. A must read for anyone interested in how contemporary art and politics dovetail today.
