Exit, Unworking & Utopia. An Essay on Three Potential Methods of Resistance (2015)

This text examines three possible forms of resistance in art and politics: unworking, exit and utopia. It hints that all three modes to resist are limited in their execution by a system where critique only perpetuates that what it is trying to negate, and that a reconsideration of how resistance can take form is a necessity in the present neoliberal condition of art. Resistance as a rupture is insufficient; what else could be considered to move beyond the linear scope between one extreme and another? This could open up possibilities to create new criteria for an alternative institutionality in both art and politics. Exit, Unworking & Utopia. An Essay on Three Potential Methods of Resistance.
