OUT NOW ON METAMUTE.ORG:



Take Me I'm Yours: Neoliberalising the Cultural Institution

by Anthony Davies

'"Talking about precariousness in the McBa is like taking a nutrition 
seminar at McDonald?s"'

The discourse of precariousness is thriving in cultural and political 
forums. But 'progressive? institutions - from museums to art schools - 
do not always practice what they preach. Anthony Davies looks behind the 
scenes of ?radical reformism?.

The End of Copenhagen?

by Stewart Home

'[Alex] Foti?s anarcho-syndicalism is a variant of Leninist vanguardism, 
the old idealist fallacy of Holy Spirit descending into unconscious (or 
at best semi-conscious) matter, of (white) 'consciousness being brought 
in from outside'.

The Situationists and the Creative Class are neck and neck in the 
competition for most mythologised ?avant garde?. In riot-torn Copenhagen 
at the end of last month the two converged.

While the conference There's Life After Death ? Scandinavian 
Situationism in Perspective was laying to rest delusions about the SI, 
partisans of the creative class seized on the riots as a victory for the 
new creative vanguardists. Stewart Home rattles some cage.
