[Nettime-nl] Critique of Creativity: Precarity, Subjectivity and Resistance in the ‘Creative Industries’


Critique of Creativity
Precarity, Subjectivity and Resistance in the ‘Creative Industries’
Gerald Raunig, Gene Ray and Ulf Wuggenig (eds)
London: mayfly 2011, 234 pages

Creativity is astir: reborn, re-conjured, re-branded, resurgent. The old myths of creation and creators – the hallowed labors and privileged agencies of demiurges and prime movers, of Biblical world- makers and self-fashioning artist-geniuses – are back underway, producing effects, circulating appeals. Much as the Catholic Church dresses the old creationism in the new gowns of ‘intelligent design’, the Creative Industries sound the clarion call to the Cultural Entrepreneurs. In the hype of the ‘creative class’ and the high flights of the digital bohemians, the renaissance of ‘the creatives’ is visibly enacted. The essays collected in this book analyze this complex resurgence of creation myths and formulate a contemporary critique of creativity.

With contributions by: Brigitta Kuster, Maurizio Lazzarato, Esther Leslie, Isabell Lorey, Angela McRobbie, Raimund Minichbauer, Monika Mokre, Stefan Nowotny, Marion von Osten, Gerald Raunig, Gene Ray, Suely Rolnik, Vassilis Tsianos, Paolo Virno, Ulf Wuggenig
