Creativity in Transition : Politics and Aesthetics of Cultural Production Across the Globe (Hardcover)
About this item
In an era of intensifying globalization and transnational connectivity, the dynamics of cultural production and the very notion of creativity is in transition. Exploring creative practices in various settings, the book does not only call attention to the spread of modernist discourses of creativity, from the colonial era to the current obsession with 'innovation' in neo-liberal capitalist cultural politics, but also to the less visible practices of copying, recycling and reproduction that occur as part and parcel of creative improvisation.
