Theory As A Prosthetic Supplement: Esthetics of the cyberworld and the effects of de-realization
AbstractIn the context of the relation between globalization, post-socialism, capitalism, activism and the image, the author would like to outline some topics that deal with positioning, theory and history, and, in addition, with inconsistency and the impossible. Her principal question is what kind of processes we can detect today within these paradigms, and how they serve or conflict with current artistic and cultural processes. She questions also if it is possible to subvert, to turn around and to re-think some old and new relations in theory, art practice and political activism.
