Is Culture Gone at Ground Zero?

Is Culture Gone at Ground Zero?
By ROBIN POGREBIN

It's not easy to pinpoint the day culture died at ground zero.

Since four cultural organizations were selected for the site a year ago, the notion of giving the arts an integral role has been gradually - and more lately precipitously - slipping away.

Daniel Libeskind's master plan for the former World Trade Center site called for life-affirming, forward-looking cultural activities that would coexist with a memorial's somber acknowledgment of lives lost. Culture was supposed to make the site a hub of round-the-clock activity for tourists and to provide a vibrant gathering place for people who live downtown.


Objet a as Inherent Limit to Capitalism: on Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri - Slavoj Zizek

categories:
What makes Empire and Multitude such a refreshing reading (clearly the definitive exercises in Deleuzian politics) is that we are dealing with books which refer to and function as the moment of theoretical reflection of-one is almost tempted to say: are embedded in-an actual global movement of anti-capitalist resistance: one can sense, behind the written lines, the smells and sounds of Seattle, Genoa and Zapatistas. So their theoretical limitation is simultaneously the limitation of the actual movement.

Media Identity

categories:

My niece, Casey Jones, (yes that’s really her name) is a really gifted young fashion designer fresh out of Philadelphia College of Textiles.  Her first gig is working for L.A.M.B the Gwen Stefani line of clothes that premiered big-time this Friday on the runways in New York.  There was an article in the New York Times magazine a while back that talked about what’s happening to fashion and refers to the L.A.M.B. line.  Seems that clothing lines are being launched that are tagged to celebrities, which is nothing new. What is new is that they cater to an accelerated business cycle where the line is produced in limited quantity, a media buzz is created, and when the sales of the line start to fall, the company is trashed or sold.  What happens with the young people working on the line is that they are given the lowest wages possible and the longest working hours possible. There’s no job security because they know that as soon as the line goes stale they’re out of a job.
