As North America and much of Europe bring younger people ever closer to nothing (as in “nothing to lose”), a split is occurring. On the one hand, in which the uneasy marriage of art and politics gets consumed by creative industries and white cubes (or just cubicles) are being realized in parts of the population. On the other hand, another demographic is also emerging that is rapidly approaching nothing through unemployment, debt, and alienation. They are being hardened through this process, and thus becoming all the more willing, if not forced, to confront neoliberalism. When positive expectations collide with a negative reality, radicality can assert itself once more.
