Artistic Freedom: Privilege and New Products

  • Liam Dee
Chapter

Abstract

The next two chapters demonstrate how art/culture is fundamentally integrated within commodification, reproducing a regime of tedious, domesticated sensuality, and collaborates with capitalist power relations to maintain the status quo. The first part outlines how the autonomy of art/culture, rather than being problematic to the forces of social power, actually reinforces the hierarchies of capitalist society; creating a mere spectacle of resistance, legitimating the cult of commercial novelty and entrepreneurialism, and reinforcing relations of exclusive privilege (creative autonomy is only for the chosen few). This artistic freedom then segues from indifferent isolation to hostile violence against the non-creative working class, as the privileges that autonomous creative labour demands are recouped through extra exploitation of the ‘reproduction labour’ that manufactures the mass-produced commodities of the art/culture industry. Art/culture is also directly complicit in anti-working-class violence through ‘public art’ invading working-class space and gentrifying affordable neighbourhoods, displacing existing tenants who can no longer afford the escalating rents.
