Abstract or Description

Ambient attitudes charts the post-critical attitudes of recent contemporary practice. The book draws on the fields of recent political philosophy and contemporary art to outline a new politics of indifference, dispersal and disengagement. Combining new modes of resistance with readings of contemporary artistic work, the book outlines key motives of the affirmative turn: from analysis to invention, from irony to humor and from specificity to whatever. The book writes together Toni Negri and Robert Walser, Liam Gillick and Giorgio Agamben, Gabriel Orozco and Don Delillo, Andreas Slominski and Gilles Deleuze to outline the politics implicit in these turns.
