Disrupting Business
Art & Activism in Times of Financial Crisis
Data Browser 05
Edited by Tatiana Bazzichelli & Geoff Cox

Disrupting Business explores some of the interconnections between art, activism and the business concept of disruptive innovation. With a backdrop of the crisis in financial capitalism and 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? This book is concerned broadly with business as material for reinvention, including critical writing and examples of art/activist projects.

Contributors include Saul Albert, Christian Ulrik Andersen, Franco "Bifo" Berardi, Heath Bunting, Paolo Cirio, Baruch Gottlieb, Brian Holmes, Geert Lovink, Dmytri Kleiner, Georgios Papadopolous, Soren Bro Pold, Oliver Ressler, Kate Rich, René Ridgway, Guido Segni, Stevphen Shukaitis, Nathaniel Tkacz, and Marina Vishmidt.

Tatiana Bazzicheli is Postdoc Researcher at Leuphana University of Lüneberg and programme director at transmediale festival, Berlin, Germany.

Geoff Cox is Associate Professor in the Department of Aesthetics and Communication, Aarhus University, Denmark, and Adjunct Faculty, Transart Institute, Germany and the United States.
