8 Week Session

It is not our fellow artist who is the enemy, but those who have made art the booty of exploitation, and who use it as a deodorant for war and fascism.  —Arnold Blanch, First American Artists Congress, 1936

The idea of this course is to reveal the state’s entrenchment in determining the direction and limitations of the visual art world in capital’s domination of society. We will be examining the extent to which the power structure will go to control our cultural imagination. For example, the CIA and other governmental agencies energetically promoted abstract expressionism as an art movement that...

Karl Marx’s Capital remains the fundamental text for understanding how capitalism works. By unraveling the commoditized forms of our interactions with nature and each other, it provides tools to understand capitalism’s astounding innovativeness and productivity, intertwined with growing inequality and misery, alienation, stunting of human potential, and ecological destruction all over the globe. In this way, Capital offers the reader a methodology for doing our own analysis of current developments. This is the first of however many terms will be required for The Capital Studies Group to read in...
