Culture As Weapon : The Art of Influence in Everyday Life, Hardback Book

Culture As Weapon : The Art of Influence in Everyday Life Hardback


Art Marketing in the Age of Total Communication. The production of culture was once the domain of artists, but beginning in the early 1900s, the emerging fields of public relations, advertising and marketing transformed the way the powerful communicate with the rest of us.

A century later, the tools are more sophisticated than ever, the onslaught more relentless.

In Culture as Weapon, acclaimed curator and critic Nato Thompson reveals how institutions use culture to ensure profits and constrain dissent and shows us that there are alternatives.
