Jim McGuigan

In recent times, publicly subsidised art galleries and museums have been subjected to immense pressure to operate more like private businesses, which is a particular feature of the transition from organised to neoliberal capitalism. Jim McGuigan’s lecture looks at a specific development in the art world that takes the neoliberal usurpation of the public sector in the cultural field further and, in this case, literally replaces it: the Saatchi phenomenon and the promotion (and sale) of cool art in general.
