I had recently come across e-flux journal through an online community, which – coupled with the aesthetic of the cover – caught my eye, and made me decide to give it a spin. The book itself is a collection of essays which investigate the role of artists in gentrification. The first essay looks at the role of critical art. This brief history begins with the role of art in the public sphere during the development of [...]

    2. Una elite que solo puede escribir sobre y para sí misma. Imagino que un gestor cultural o un curador en la periferia del circuito puede ver acá reforzada su ideología profesional. Para el resto no hay nada.

    3. Menjelaskan bagaimana dunia kerja kreatif yang awalnya semacam anomali ke depannya dapat menjadi sumber pendapatan baru yang menjanjikan baik untuk pribadi dan negara. Kaitannya dengan urbanism dan budaya.Buku ini relate banget sama perkembangan industri kreatif di Indonesia, khususnya Jakarta saat ini.

    4. Tender but severe critique to how urbanists see artists, and how artists see their role as part of a functional society. Apparently there's still hope for the both of them.
