Catalog Number: 
Magazine Trashing the Neoliberal City
Date: 
2007
Issue: 
003
Abstract: 
Amid the neoliberal transformation of Chicago--which extends capitalist market domination into every sphere, and substitutes competition and consumption for solidarity and social justice--the editors felt an urgent need to reclaim, rebuild, and redefine public space. The publication documents a period of cultural activism in Chicago stretching from 2000 to 2005, and covers various projects and organizations that responded to neoliberal restructuring. Topics include collective infrastructures, protest experiments, gentrification, public housing, and urban planning. (Adapted from introduction.)

Notes: 
Publication was developed during the editor's research visit to the Learning Site in Copenhagen, Denmark. United States contact for more information is AREA Chicago. (From back cover.)

Framing the Artists: Artists & Art in Film & Television

Catalog Number: 
Journal, Framing the Artists: Artists & Art in Film & Television
Date: 
April 2005
Issue: 
1
Abstract: 
Continuing stereotypes of art and artists in mainstream media reveal to us the real impact (or lack thereof) that artists have on the world around them. The minimal presence of living, working, visual artists in these media spheres contributes to the kinds of generalizations and misunderstandings that many people seem to have about the power and function of the visual arts. It is our contention that by continually watching, cataloging,and analyzing these portrayals, artists can also gain a better understanding of their own responsibilities to their viewers and how the stereotypes hurt their ability to effectively communicate their ideas. *
