Dark matter : art and politics in the age of enterprise culture by Gregory Sholette( )

22 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Art is big business, with some artists able to command huge sums of money for their works, while the vast majority are ignored or dismissed by critics. This book shows that these marginalised artists - the 'dark matter' of the art world - are essential to the survival of the mainstream and that they often organize in opposition to it
Collectivism after modernism : the art of social imagination after 1945( )

19 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The desire to speak in a collective voice has long fueled social imagination and artistic production. Prior to the Second World War, artists understood collectivization as an expression of the promise or failure of industrial and political modernity envisioned as a mass phenomenon. After the war, artists moved beyond the old ideal of progress by tying the radicalism of their political dreams to the free play of differences. Organized around a series of case studies spanning the globe from Europe, Japan, and the United States to Africa, Cuba, and Mexico, Collectivism after Modernism covers such renowned collectives as the Guerrilla Girls and the Yes Men, as well as lesser-known groups. Contributors explore the ways in which collectives function within cultural norms, social conventions, and corporate or state-sanctioned art. They examine the impact of new technologies on artistic practice, the emergence of networked group identity, and the common characteristic of collective production to blur the typical separations between artists, activists, service workers, and communities in need. Together, these essays demonstrate that collectivism survives as an influential and increasingly visible artistic practice despite the art world's star system of individuality. Collectivism after Modernism provides the historical understanding necessary for thinking through postmodern collective practice, now and into the future."--Publisher description
It's the political economy, stupid : the global financial crisis in art and theory by Gregory Sholette( )

17 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Its the Political Economy, Stupid brings together internationally acclaimed artists and thinkers, including Slavoj iek, David Graeber, Judith Butler and Brian Holmes, to focus on the current economic crisis in a sustained and critical manner. In sympathy with the subject matter, the book features powerful original artwork for the cover, and an internal design theme based on the movements of Goldman Sachs stock market values by activist designer Noel Douglas. What emerges is a powerful critique of the current capitalist crisis through an analytical and theoretical response and an aesthetic-cultural rejoinder. By combining artistic responses with the analysis of leading radical theorists, the book expands the boundaries of critique beyond the usual discourse. Its the Political Economy, Stupid argues that it is time to push back against the dictates of the capitalist logic and, by use of both theoretical and artistic means, launch a rescue of the very notion of the social
Delirium and resistance : activist art and the crisis of capitalism by Gregory Sholette( )

17 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 1,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Capitalist crisis do not begin within art, but art reflects and even amplifies their effects. The dizzying prices achieved by artists who pander to the financial elites, the proliferation of museums that contribute to the global competition between cities to attract capital, and the strange relationship between art and the rampant gentrification that restructures the urban landscape: these are the obvious features of art's subservience to capitalism. There is a flipside, however, which shows art playing an increasingly important role in resistance to austerity and the prefiguration of a different world. Delirium and Resistance engages in critical dialogue with artists' collectives, counter-institutions and activist groups, while reflecting on the inequalities of neoliberal culture. It draws on over thirty years of critical debates and practices both in and beyond the art world to historicise and advocate for the art activist tradition that radically entangles the visual arts with political struggles

Plastic economies by Dan Peterman( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peterman works with ideas about recycling systems and recycled materials to reveal how we interact with nature and technology.

Revolution as an eternal dream : the exemplary failure of the Madame Binh Graphics Collective by Mary Patten( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Revolution as an Eternal Dream: the Exemplary Failure of the Madame Binh Graphics Collective (MBGC) examines the political practice and visual propaganda of a now-obscure women's poster, printmaking, and street art collective based in New York City between 1975 and 1983. For a brief, intense period of time, the MBGC collaborated on projects against racism and in solidarity with national liberation movements, producing many beautiful multicolored silkscreened prints, note cards, banners, posters, and other print ephemera before withdrawing into the isolation of a sectarian and militaristic political line. By 1982 its core members were in prison or underground. Revolution as an Eternal Dream calls up the perpetual desire for revolution, but also the frailty of such dreams." -- Publisher's description
