VISUAL CULTURES AS OPPORTUNITY: HELGE MOOSHAMMER & PETER MORTENBOCK. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 88 pp. 17 x 12 cm. ISBN 9783956791000 In English.
Publisher's description: Assemblies, gathering places and agora-like situations have become popular sites for contemporary art. At the heart of these arenas is the search for new ways to counter the pervasive and alienating marketization of all aspects of our lives. In Visual Cultures as Opportunity, academic duo Helge Mooshammer and Peter Mortenbock analyze the networked spaces of global informal markets, the cultural frontiers of speculative investments and recent urban protests, and discuss crucial shifts in the process of collective articulation within today's "crowd economy." Artists and cultural producers are at the forefront of testing the viability of co-working, crowdfunding and open-source provisions. A great deal of hope is being placed on the potential of social formations enabled by new technologies of connectivity and exchange. At the same time, global capitalism is expanding into multipolar constellations of top-down and bottom-up economic governance. A late 2015 presentation with the duo was held at The Store Front, NY.
