Example text

In the art world: Since the 1960s, artists have pursued strategies of image saturation appropriate to populations of images rather than inventing single works. Andy Warhol was the pioneer: he overproduced paintings in his “Factory” using photo silkscreen printing processes; he mastered media circuits previously external to the art world such as film, music, advertising, and performance; and he carefully cultivated his own personal celebrity. 21 The emergent image is a dynamic form that arises out of circulation.

The value of the work is in its inner structure; the project of the critic is to bring this inner structure to light. • Meaning lies before the object: Here is where the avant-­garde tradition of utopia should be located. The work of art foretells an ideal future to come—­a model that has recently twentieth-­ century regained the currency it had in early-­ avant-­gardes such as Russian Constructivism or Dutch De Stijl through Molly Nesbit and Hans-­Ulrich Obrist’s Utopia Station project at the 2003 Venice Biennale, which the curators naïvely asserted could trigger significant social change.
