Description


In this book the author takes the concept of the New as a starting point to open the way to a broader reflection on ar t production within neoliberal capitalism. Piazza explores the notions of innovation and New respectively in the Social Sciences and in the Humanities, tracing the differences from the conceptual and temporal perspective in relation to the most recent debates on creativity and postmodernism. The book investigates the field of theatre and dance, focusing on the essential aspects that link the New with the contemporary condition and its discourse. Combining theory and practice, this book calls for an art production able to slip out of the framework of innovation and builds the ground to rethink the New and its political value in the arts.
