“I am interested in rethinking conceptually, politically and ideologically the conditions of the re/production of life, art and culture in the social and political space in the present moment of neoliberal global capitalism. Capitalism is not just a framework “out there somewhere.” It is the condition sine qua non of the way we live and of how life is conceptualized today. It is also the basic condition of the way in which the social and political layers of society function. Last but not least, it is at the basis of the way in which each and every institution of contemporary capitalist society is organized and functions today. When I say “institution,” I mean both its material foundation and its “non-material” discourses. Institutions today comprise innumerable social practices, their theoretical conceptualization and practical organizations.” (extract from “From Biopolitics to Necropolitics and the Institution of Contemporary Art” by Marina Grzinic)
