Session 137: “Dark Matter: Art and Politics in the Age of Enterprise Culture” by Gregory Sholette
During this Theory Tuesdays session, Dimitrina Sevova presented a short introduction to dark matter and excerpts from the book “Dark Matter: Art and Politics in the Age of Enterprise Culture” by Gregory Sholette (Pluto Press: London, 2010).
“Based on a multitude of examples from the heterocosmos of invisible art practices, Dark Matter is the ultimate companion to contemporary activist art. In his exquisite and theoretically informed style Gregory Sholette investigates the problematic functions of art practices in the processes of neoliberal appropriation, but above all in the wild explosive, and deterritorializing lines that are drawn in the dark matter between art and politics.” -Gerald Raunig
