“Since capital is always doing well somewhere, the illusion arises that all will be well everywhere if we only readjust the form of capital to that predominant in Japan and West Germany (the 1980s), the United States (the 1990s) or China (after 2000). Capital never has to address its systemic failings because it moves them around geographically.”
David Harvey, Seventeen contradictions and the End of Capitalism: Uneven Geographical Developments and the Production of Space. p154

This is German idealism: And the hat is the reason it’s bad. Who thought that was a good idea? Hegel shouldn’t dress himself.
“Dadaism wanted to suppress art without realizing it; surrealism wanted to realize art without suppressing it. The critical position later elaborated by the Situationists has shown that the suppression and the realization of art are inseparable aspects of a single supersession of art.”
Guy Debord, Society of the Spectacle (via anarchistbloom)
I have seen a lot of really unsophisticated anti-art positions emerging lately (most of which seem trapped within the dadaist moment of suppressing art). Anti-art is the realisation of art by overcoming the separation between art and life. This does not mark the end of or rejection of creative artistic praxis, in fact it is the acceleration of artistic practice for the purpose of overcoming the limits imposed on this praxis by capital. Obviously this is impossible within capitalism and thus the ultimate realisation of art would only be possible under new social conditions engendered by revolution. Anti-art, at least in this instance, develops out of a perverse obsession with art and the modes of thought which artistic praxis produces and interrogates. See above text for a far more thorough explication of this position. (via bustakay)
