The Perspective of Metaculture

(p.213) 12 Culture, Institution, Conduct
Creativity and Academic Activism

Tony Bennett

Hong Kong University Press

The chapter suggests “institutionalization” has overtones of being confined against one's will or settling down for want of a better choice. The negative nuances are especially tenacious in Western usage when “the academy” is at issue, as though the latter still signifies a mode of professionalism imagined (however implausibly in today's conditions) either as enclosed in an ivory tower, detached from public and political life, or as doomed to a demoralizing state of “collusion” and “complicity” with omnipotent Powers That Be.

Keywords:   metaculture, institutional space, ideological articulation, Ontological politics, Aesthetics
