"The talk looks at the place of contemporary art within the nexus of instrumental life and mass culture, between which art is supposed to maintain its ideal of freedom. That freedom is increasingly under pressure from state and business concerns which threaten to underminde the very basis of its existence, and the reason why they turn to art in the first place." (Julian Stallabrass)
