Compost Capitalism: Art and Aesthetics at the End of Empire - Samuel Alexander

Compost Capitalism: Art and Aesthetics at the End of Empire - Samuel Alexander

30.00

What role might art need to play in the transition beyond consumer capitalism? Can 'culture jamming' contribute to the necessary revolution in consciousness? And might art be able to provoke social change in ways that rational argument and scientific evidence cannot? In this stimulating new book, "Compost Capitalism: Art and Aesthetics at the End of Empire," degrowth scholar Samuel Alexander explores these questions by curating a stunning array of ‘culture jamming’ images from a range of counter-cultural artists. By turns provocative and inspiring, the reader is exposed to art and images that challenge the status quo and expand the horizons of what alternatives are possible. This book is an abridged, image-based version of "Art Against Empire: Toward an Aesthetics of Degrowth," in which Samuel Alexander advances the degrowth movement by establishing the theoretical foundations of degrowth aesthetics.
