AGAINST HUMAN NATURE
Post-Fordist working conditions wear a mask of openness, flexibility, and individual freedom. Criticism thus finds all the more difficult to achieve its objectives when it is literally attracted by institutions. Under such conditions, is it even possible to make art that is not part of the culture industry?

This instinct came in direct response to the gender polarisation I saw on the streets around me, in the imagery of women which were littered across the billboards and…
