THE USE OF 'ART'

At the beginning of this text, we briefly considered a recent exhibition called Playing the City, which cited a number of avant-garde art movements as inspiration for its own activities. We considered the ideas and motivations of these movements in a bid to discover what they had in common and how they could relate to Playing the City, a line of inquiry that necessitated an analysis of the discontents of capitalism. We’ve also considered various ideas and visions about fulfilment that have been put forward by psychologists, and we saw that many parallels could be drawn between these ideas and those of the avant-gardes.

We’ll now look once again at Playing the City in an attempt to figure out what its motivations and aims may be and how they relate to what we’ve already discussed, and we’ll speculate on the effectiveness of trying to achieve these aims in the way that it has.
