Center for Curatorial Studies presents

The Visitor Talks: Dave Beech - Art and Capitalism

Monday, March 10, 2014

The talk will provide a critical survey of theories of art's relationship to capitalism (reification, culture industry, commodification, spectacle, incorporation, recuperation and real subsumption) as well as offer an alternative account based on art's "economic exceptionalism" resulting in art's "commodification without commodification".

Dave Beech is an artist in the collective Freee, based in London, and teaches Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art. He writes regularly for Art Monthly and recent books include Beauty for MIT/Whitechapel and the forthcoming title Art and Value for the Historical Materialism book series. He has exhibited at the Istanbul Biennial 2013 and the Liverpool Biennial 2010.

This talk is given as part of the lecture series The Visitor Talks : Pre-ambulation and Retrospection.
