Art and the Politics of Individuation:
Affect and the Multiple Body in Cognitive Capitalism

Art and the Politics of Individuation, this year’s Saas Fee Summer Institute of Art, engages the far edge of contemporary artistic and theoretical discourse through the perspective of Cognitive Capitalism. The mutation of labor generated by the information age has led to new sites of production in the mind and brain. This course asks us to consider what may be the ramifications for art practitioners and theorists.

Brand revolution: undeserved underclass

“I’ll tell you what it won’t be like,” said Brand in a moment of clarity, “a huge disparity between rich and poor, where 300 Americans have the same amount of wealth as the 85 million poorest Americans, where there is an exploited and underserved underclass that are being continually ignored and where welfare is slashed while Cameron and Osborne go to court to defend the rights of bankers to continue to receive their bonuses. This has to be addressed.”

The Human Centipede (UFSO) Power to Sussex Occupiers

UFSO  It must be broken down then reconstituted to allow the frictionless extraction of profit. Anything superfluous, like, say, a philosophy department, unless it can be marshaled as market differentiation, is burnt off in the process. Scorched earth is the standard policy of those whose tactics are calculated by cost/benefit analysis. If the riots taught us anything, it is that fighting fire with fire remains a viable option.
