About this product
- DescriptionLeading theorist and art curator Nicolas Bourriaud tackles the excluded, the disposable and the nature of waste by looking to the future of art-the exform. He argues that the great theoretical battles to come will be fought in the realms of ideology, psychoanalysis and art. A realist theory and practice must begin by uncovering the mechanisms that create the distinctions between the productive and unproductive, product and waste, and the included and excluded. To do this we must go back to the towering theorist of ideology Louis Althusser and examine how ideology conditions political discourse in ways that rmalize cultural, racial and ecomic practices of exclusion.
