On critique

July 7, 2013 § Leave a comment

Thanks to Crossdale for sharing this critique of Goldsmiths art students on facebook…I found the language somewhat amusing (because verbose); the basic point (I think?) is “if you claim to be critiquing capitalism and you just present capitalism as an abstract boogieman then you’re not doing it right – capitalism is not just an abstract boogieman, it does real things to real humans, subjecting them to pain, misery, and death.” It should go without saying that the point has significance beyond Goldsmiths art students.
