Disrupting Business: art and activism in times of financial crisis

Geoff Cox, Tatiana Bazzichelli

Research output: Book/anthology/dissertation/reportAnthologyResearchpeer-review


Disruptive Business explores some of the interconnections between art, activism
and the business concept of disruptive innovation. With a backdrop of the crisis
of financial capitalism, austerity cuts in the cultural sphere, the idea is to focus
on potential art strategies in relation to a broken economy. In a perverse way, we ask whether this presents new opportunities for cultural producers to achieve more autonomy over their production process. If it is indeed possible, or desirable, what
alternative business models emerge? The book is concerned broadly with business
as material for reinvention, including critical writing and examples of art/activist projects.
