Reproducing Autonomy

Reproducing Autonomy: Work, Money, Crisis and Contemporary Art: 2016

Kerstin Stakemeier and Marina Vishmidt


In this book, Marina Vishmidt and Kerstin Stakemeier analyse ‘autonomy’ and ‘reproduction’, in the understanding that this method of categorical isolation must be overcome if we are to reach towards a relationship of the two terms. These three essays establish a new framework to locate notions of artistic autonomy and autonomies of art. The texts not only offer an entrance into thinking about the role that autonomy has occupied in modern European intellectual history; they also put forward an original thesis.
