Product Description

This book is published on the occasion of Activating Artifacts: About Academia, an exhibition project by Antoni Muntadas that consists of two elaborate video installations. Its aim is to facilitate an interdisciplinary dialogue about higher education—its many limitations as well as new possibilities.
The project presents an opportunity to critically engage with the structure and function of the US university system. It does so by exploring the topics of privatization, corporatization, gentrification, and globalization, as well as the complex relationships between the production of knowledge and the economic interests it serves and generates. —CADVC
