In an essay included in this volume, the Italian philosopher Paolo Virno argues that the arts have become a component of what he calls the post-Fordist production process, and have consequently sacrificed what little autonomy from consumerism they may previously have had. Exploring this assertion, the authors gathered in ‘Arts in Society’ consult international figures from various artistic disciplines to address the changing landscape in which creative activities meet the world. The developments in the art world are traced in discussions with, among others, artists Michelangelo Pistoletto and Thierry De Cordier, choreographers Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, Sang Jijia and Willy Tsao, theater director Pippo Delbono and electronica musician Matthew Herbert. ‘Arts in Society’ makes a realistic portrait of art’s relation with economic, political and ecological realms, constructing a revelatory narrative about power and impotence, cynicism and utopia, nihilism and engagement in the arts.
