Art and the Cultural Turn: Farewell to Committed, Autonomous Art? Irmgard Emmelhainz Nowadays, artists’ voices are thought to be important in giving shape to society, and art is considered to be useful. Moreover, the state, the private sector and society attribute to art a decisive political role as on the one hand, they invest in culture with the purpose generating political and economic surplus value. On the other hand, art and cultural practices are now part of the same network of strategies and questions as social movements are (this space is known as the “Infosphere”). In a context in which the creative, political, and mediatic fields are intrinsically linked, contemporary cultural practices point toward a new social order in which art has merged with life, privileging lived experience, collective communication and performative politics. In turn, the commodification of culture and its use as a resource—as well as the fusion of art, politics, and media—have had a significant impact in the way in which capitalist economies operate. 1. 2. 3. 4.

100 Greatest Britons 100 Greatest Britons was broadcast in 2002 by the BBC. The programme was based on a television poll conducted to determine whom the United Kingdom public considered the greatest British people in history.[1][2] The series, Great Britons, included individual programmes featuring the individuals who featured in the top ten, with viewers having further opportunities to vote after each programme.[3] It concluded with a debate. All of the top 10 were dead by the year of broadcast. The poll resulted in nominees including Guy Fawkes, who was executed for trying to blow up the Parliament of England; Oliver Cromwell who created a republican England; Richard III, suspected of murdering his nephews; James Connolly, an Irish nationalist and socialist who was executed by the Crown in 1916; and a surprisingly high ranking of 17th for actor and singer Michael Crawford (the second highest-ranked entertainer, after John Lennon).

Islington Mill Art Academy: I.M.A.A Reading Group 12.02.13: Theodor Adorno - Punctuation Marks Adorno's Punctuation Marks was written in 1953, and playfully discusses the nature of punctuation in written language, with references to ancient usage and the personification of certain marks. I had come across this essay whilst conducting research into the work of Rosa Barba, an artist who is interested in gaps and breaks, and suggested it for the reading group. I thought it would be interesting to discuss a piece of writing about writing, and also to read writing about writing, then, with this particular reading group being punctuated by pancakes and late arrivals, we had some compelling, fun and anecdote-driven discussions. Present: Lauren Velvick, Marcelle Holt, Natalie Bradbury, Maurice Carlin, Sara Nesteruk and Hannah Leighton Boyce. The essay itself is much jollier, and more flowery than many of us expected from Adorno, poetically expressing the often subtle, yet indispensible function of punctuation for the written word.

Manoush Zomorodi: Mama Entrepreneur: Ex-NY Times Editor Turns Media Mogul I'm really into the term "Work-Life Integration" right now, having given up on "Work-Live Balance." So I've been talking to some entrepreneur mommies in my Brooklyn neighborhood to find how they get through the day while building a business and family. Here's a profile of Holly Epstein Ojalvo. She is founder and editor-in-chief of a new news site called Kicker. The idea behind Kicker is to present news in plain language for younger people or just those of us who don't have time to read our Twitter feed all day every day. Holly Epstein Ojalvo, Editor-in Chief of Kicker: I'm Holly. MZ: Why/when did you decide to leave a "real" job and start out on your own? HEO: Having a vision that I'm very passionate about is the number one reason. MZ: What's been the best/worst thing about being a lone operator? HEO:The best thing is that I'm really excited to get to work every day. MZ: How did you deal with your biz during Hurricane Sandy? Know a mama whose working it in an unusual way?

C-PAL Creating a Legacy Project [Note: This 3,000 word article is all about creating your own legacy project. It’s not short reading, but it can help you work towards building something beautiful.] In the spring of 2007 I was feeling stuck. As amazing as they were, the four years I had spent in Africa were fading off into the distance. In my new life I had migrated to Seattle, entered graduate school, started a new business, and began traveling independently to faraway places during school breaks. These were all good projects. I had no legacy project, and it really bothered me. I thought of a legacy project as something I’d create that would outlast me; something I could point to years from now and have more than just memories to show for it. As I was looking for a new focus, I considered a few options that initially seemed to be good choices. 1. 2. 3. All three of these options were attractive, but the more I looked at them the more I realized they were all flawed. The next option, “Enter a Ph.D. Things to Think About
