Summary, etc
  • "Art and (Bare) Life: A Biopolitical Inquiry analyzes modern and contemporary art's drive to blur with life, and how this is connected to the democratic state's biologized control of life. Art’s ambition to transform life intersects in striking ways with modern biopower’s aim to normalize, purify, judge, and transform life--rendering it bare. In these intersecting yet different orientations toward life, this book finds the answer to the question: How did autonomous art become such an effective tool of the capitalist state? From today's 'creative cities' to the birth of modern democracy and art in the French Revolution, Art and (Bare) Life explores how the Enlightenment’s discovery of life itself is mirrored in politics and art. The galvanizing revelation that we are, in Michel Foucault's words, 'a living species in a living world,' free to alter our environment to produce specific effects, is compared here to the discovery that art is an autonomous system that can be piloted toward its own self-determined ends--art for art's sake. But when both art and the capitalist state seek to change life rather than reflect it, they find themselves set on a collision course"--Back cover.

A study of art's drive to blur art and life and to transform the latter, through the lens of modern biopower. Art and (Bare) Life- A Biopolitical Inquiry analyzes modern and contemporary art's drive to blur with life, and how this is connected to the democratic state's biologized control of life. Art's ambition to transform life intersects in striking ways with modern biopower's aim to normalize, purify, judge, and transform life-rendering it bare. In these intersecting yet different orientations toward life, this book finds the answer to the question- How did autonomous art become such an effective tool of the capitalist state?
From today's "creative cities" to the birth of modern democracy and art in the French Revolution, Art and (Bare) Life explores how the Enlightenment's discovery of life itself is mirrored in politics and art. The galvanizing revelation that we are, in Michel Foucault's words, "a living species in a living world," free to alter our environment to produce specific effects, is compared here to the discovery that art is an autonomous system that can be piloted toward its own self-determined ends-art for art's sake. But when both art and the capitalist state seek to change life rather than reflect it, they find themselves set on a collision course.
