About this book

This book places a focus on the regimes of in/visibility and representation in Europe and offers an innovative perspective on the topic of global capitalism in relation to questions of race, class, gender and migration, as well as historicization of biopolitics and (de)coloniality. The aim of this volume is to revisit theories of art, new media technology, and aesthetics under the weight of political processes of discrimination, racism, anti-Semitism and new forms of coloniality in order to propose a new dispositive of the ontology and epistemology of the image, of life and capitalism as well as labor and modes of life. This book is firmly embedded in the present moment, when due to rapid and major changes on all levels of political and social reality the need for rearticulation in theoretical, artistic and political practices and rethinking of historical narratives becomes almost tangible.

Reviews

“This book discusses new theories of art, aesthetics and media under the weight of very recent political processes of discrimination and racism worldwide. By using interdisciplinary approach and positions such as theory and history of art, cultural studies and critical theory, this publication gives very new insights into strategies of contemporary art and culture today, overlapped with encountered global ideological tensions of global East, West, Nord and South. Papers by eleven internationally renowned scholars are merged into one single ideological frame, from where several questions could be extracted such as what is the role of art in new global political settings? or Does the art have power to be spokesman of disempowered, discriminated, subordinated groups and individuals today? This book is a must read for theoreticians, artist, cultural activists, independent thinkers and journalists.” (Irfan Hošić, University of Bihać, Bosnia and Herzegovina)
