Politics of Study
There's not a single contemporary art college or university today that isn't a battleground. These wars are wars about value, meaning, pedagogy, criticality, and above all, unfortunately, the market.
Whether we rise above them, move sideways, go underground, embrace or escape these fights, we did not choose them and their terms generate increasing losses for all those who still desire a relationship to something irreducible to money.
This collection of interviews contains passionate visions and analyses that lay bare the stakes of our contemporary political, emotional and educational predicament.
With contributions from Judy Chicago, Andrea Fraser, Melissa Gordon & Marina Vishmidt, Brian Holmes, Gal Kirn, Suhail Malik, The New Centre for Research & Practice, Garald Raunig, and Ruther Sonderegger.
