Don’t be fooled by the way capitalism co-opts art. It pretends to do it for money, but underneath money is terror. Terror that there might be a different way to live. There is a different way, and it’s not a William Morris utopia, or an Omega workshop niche; it’s a celebration of the human spirit. Art reminds us of all the possibilities we are persuaded to forget. Peace or war, we need those alternatives.

Jeanette Winterson, ‘What is art for?’, The Guardian.

Shia Labeouf performed a reading of “What is metamodernism?”, written by Robin van den Akker and myself; and “The metamodernist manifesto”, written by Luke Turner, during my cultural theory class last term. The performance was created by Shia, Luke and Nastja Rönkko.
