A Political Economy of the Senses : Neoliberalism, Reification, Critique, Paperback / softback Book

A Political Economy of the Senses : Neoliberalism, Reification, Critique Paperback / softback

Part of the New Directions in Critical Theory series

Description

Anita Chari revives the concept of reification from Marx and the Frankfurt School to spotlight the resistance to neoliberal capitalism now forming at the level of political economy and at the more sensate, experiential level of subjective transformation.

Reading art by Oliver Ressler, Zanny Begg, Claire Fontaine, Jason Lazarus, and Mika Rottenberg, as well as the politics of Occupy Wall Street, Chari identifies practices through which artists and activists have challenged neoliberalism's social and political logics, exposing its inherent tensions and contradictions.
