Art isn't just about creating work anymore. Today, external pressures
and constraints play a large role in the artistic process and production.
In recognition of this reality, the Institut für Kunstkritik held a series of
conferences in 2006 and 2007 to explore the value system that results
from what they dubbed the New Spirit of Capitalism and to confront
theoretical models with ad-hoc conditions of production. The thoughts
of conference participants Luc Boltanski, Sabeth Buchmann, Tim
Griffin, W.J.T. Mitchell, Sighard Neckel, Martin Saar, and Paolo Virno
are compiled in this book of questions and dilemmas for today's
cultural producers and society at large.
