Alex provokes

Here’s a great provocation from This Thing Called Artist Development at Ovalhouse by Alex Swift.

The full title of the talk is “Samuel Beckett’s First Play Was Shit And It Took A World War For Him To Write A Good One (and he was 40 before he did) or Artist Development Programmes are a Form of Disciplining Reified Ideology Reflecting the Underlying Structures, Practices and Brutalities of the Late-Capitalist, Neo-Liberal Economic Base, And, You Know, That Can Fuck Off.”

It’s sort of about artist development but it’s also about, well, you know, the world. And stuff.
