CULTURE CLASS. Martha Rosler. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2013. Published in association with E-Flux, New York. E-Flux Journal, 7. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 256 pp. with 30 ills. 18 x 11 cm. ISBN 9781934105818 In English.
Publisher's description: In this collection of essays, conceptual art pioneer Martha Rosler considers the economic and historical precedents for today's soft ideology of creativity, with special focus on its elaborate retooling of class distinctions. In the creative city, the neutralization of subcultural movements and the professionalization of the artist combine with an army of freelancers and interns to constitute a new social sphere in which traditional markers of difference don't apply, allowing class distinctions to be utterly dissolved or willfully suppressed. The result is a handful of cities where artists in search of cheap rent become the avant-garde pioneers of gentrification, and no one asks any longer where all of this came from and how. With an introduction by historian and writer Stephen Squibb.
