Explores the implications of neo-liberal capitalism for the fields of culture, art and life throughout the planet, as well as in the Eastern European transitional states. These fields are presented not as autonomous cultural, artistic and social practices, but as practices strongly implicated in contemporary capitalist neoliberal democracy. Examining the current mechanisms of performative politics, and further developing a line of recent social theory tracing from Foucault to Negri and others, the authors expose a number of totalitarian practices hidden behind global capital, especially with respect to information technologies and mass communications.
