<nettime> Claire Bishop?s Game: Subversive Compliance


Hello,
Claire Bishop has made some invaluable contributions to the discursive territories of the contemporary âart worldâ (whatever we might consider to be). Does she make omissions? Certainly. But, when it comes to contemporary critical art practices: interventions, Tactical Media, etc. etc. there is no totalising critique, nor should or can there necessarily be one. A good question, also, is why do people expect one? The discursive landscape of critical art practices is highly uneven; the fact that within it that there are enough substantial insights and analyses to provide practical traction that, in small but insignificant ways, thwarts the culture and ideological perspectives of the neoliberal juggernaut are conceptual nuggets to be expanded upon and developed.Â

Thanks to the many who have made this a useful discussion

cheers
allan
