Art is a place where the rules of engagement are open to question. Art is a history of doing nothing and a long tale of useful action. It is always a fetishization of decision and indecision—with each mark, structure and, engagement. This book’s challenge to contemporary practitioners, or current artists, is that “contemporary art” no longer accounts for what is being made; it no longer is connected to what we have all become rather than what we might propose, represent, or fail to achieve. The challenge made is that artists today, whether they like it or not, have fallen into a trap predetermined by their existence within a regime that is centered on a rampant capitalization of the mind.
