Troubles with the economy, geography and history
Contemporary global corporations control abstracts networks of management and executive boards; the majority of present-day workers' protests is doomed to fail, for there is no concrete person that they could address. In postmodernity, politics as a formalised technique of governance is carried over into cultural and artistic action. Thus, politics and the political are created with the regimes of aestheticisation in art and culture; as a result, politics is becoming depoliticised, while art is increasingly politicised. Contemporary art thus represent a ladder that leads from a depoliticised abstract space into the space of politicized social reality. The article considers a series of critical artistic practices from the end of the twentieth and the beginning of the twenty-first centuries.
