Democratic Capitalism

This project looks at how precarious living conditions are influenced by a ‘triple crisis’ of governance affecting the state, the market, and communities. The project’s hypotheses include the idea that social protest movements and right-wing mobilisation are both direct results of the erosion of democratic procedures and precarious living conditions. The project also examines the distinction between artistic and reactionary forms of critique, and looks at which forms of protest predominate when populations understand their precarious living conditions as resulting from a crisis of neoliberalism.
