DARK MATTER GREGORY SHOLETTE PDF

High art light matter is viewed as all art that is nationalized and well-known. Low art dark matter is considered all art that is out there but relatively unknown by the general public but known on a much smaller scale. Gregory Sholette In the United States there is a crises happening not only on the streets with police brutality but also in universities with the slashing of tenured jobs and the hiring of part-time professors. When that day comes, Americans will wake up with eyes no longer disillusioned by their own greatness.

Tactical Media also plays a decisive factor in the artistic production of some of the art collectives integrated by Sholette. For instance, in REPOhistory produced alternative signs giving account of silenced episodes of New York City history as a way of suggesting the existence of a multilayered past lying behind the surface of well-known buildings [11]. Both authors argue that only by historicizing artistic collectivism could it be possible to grasp its true potential.

Sholette labels these artistic practices and institutions "dark matter," a concept further developed in Dark Matter: Art and Politics in the Age of Enterprise Culture [16]. This dark matter is largely invisible to those cultural administrators - curators, directors, collectors, critics, historians and artists - who are the gatekeepers of large cultural institutions. However, the same institutional art world is dependent on this dark matter as well as the resources of its members. The transformation of art is too fundamental to be resolved in this way, because art can no longer be held apart from the forces that seek to integrate it into neoliberal capitalism.

What has changed is the capacity to conceal this fact as the privileged status of art, its autonomy, and the exception it represents to capitalist markets is subsumed by post-Fordist enterprise culture. The main idea advanced in this book is that art has become simultaneously part of the increasing financialization of everything under neoliberal capitalism and a valuable resource for civic mobilization and progressive social transformation. A key concept of this research is the proposal that we have entered a world of Bare Art.

With anonymity comes distance, safety, invisibility and control and, thereby, the increase of power. The police are there to protect the wealthy and not to protect basic human rights. It would be a shame if the readership darm limited and did not include policy makers and those of us in and around other sectors of the cultural industries. That just makes me grumpy. We are its dead capital.
