Gregor Sholette investigates a number of specific cultural changes that have taken place in a period of intense socio-economic change and instability beginning roughly in the late 1970s up to the 2008 global financial collapse. He asks what effect economic liberalization had on the working conditions of artists themselves, and whether artisic practice has been wholly or partially subsumed by capitalist modes of production. Sholette traces the path taken by socially engaged and activist art in the late 1970s up to the present day using case studies from New York City where he has been active as an artists and critic for almost forty years.
