Nils Norman suggests self-organisation is a way of making critically informed decisions

Nils Norman speaking as part of the ‘Changing Places‘ roundtable in Frieze Issue 148:

Many artists are of course complicit with these processes. (It’s hard to generalize about how artists are contributing – or not – as a generic group.) But some who are critical of how they are inscribed within gentrification processes are becoming more militant and refusing to participate in such events. Groups of artists interested in these problems are developing real alternatives amongst themselves, in communities and larger networks, and in that sense are trying to eliminate the ‘rock and the hard place’ option through self-organizing and collective action.

    Empty platitudes that echo nothing of the drives inherent int he 1960s and 70s models. What else to expect of Norman, who basically produced nice models in vitrines for museums, of what “alternates” would look like.
