'"Talking about precariousness in the McBa is like taking a nutrition
seminar at McDonalds"'

forums. But 'progressive institutions - from museums to art schools -
do not always practice what they preach. Anthony Davies looks behind the
scenes of radical reformism.
The End of Copenhagen?
by Stewart Home
'[Alex] Fotis anarcho-syndicalism is a variant of Leninist vanguardism,
the old idealist fallacy of Holy Spirit descending into unconscious (or
at best semi-conscious) matter, of (white) 'consciousness being brought
in from outside'.
The Situationists and the Creative Class are neck and neck in the
competition for most mythologised avant garde. In riot-torn Copenhagen
at the end of last month the two converged.
While the conference There's Life After Death Scandinavian
Situationism in Perspective was laying to rest delusions about the SI,
partisans of the creative class seized on the riots as a victory for the
new creative vanguardists. Stewart Home rattles some cage.
