On the 7th of September, I held a keynote lecture at the annual conference of the Design History Society this year entitled ‘The Cost of Design’ , a conference intent on exploring the complexities of the historic and contemporary relationship between design and economy.

Outlaw motorcycle clubs have grown, spread and matured. Popular culture glamorizes them; law enforcement agencies fight them and the media vilify them. Meanwhile, the outlaw bikers exploit the current cultural and economic climate to attract new members. How Outlaws Win Friends and Influence People argues that the growth of these anti-establishment groups under neoliberalism is not coincidental, but inevitable. The book asks a critical question for...

In the last decade, elitist philanthropy exploded in certain parts of the West and so did philanthropy of outlaw motorcycle clubs. The question is, under what conditions does philanthropy become an effective strategy of legitimization of one’s power in society? Neoliberalism did not only result in extreme inequality, weakening of the state, and emergence of increasingly disillusioned population, but also enabled philanthropy to become an effective strategy of l...

Terror, Edmund Burke argued, is the “common stock of everything that is sublime,” capable of producing delight when held at a certain distance. What puzzled Burke was the question of “how any species of delight can be derived from a cause so apparently contrary to it.” I suggest that we may look for an ethnographic answer to this question among the supporters, hangers-on and diverse admirers of o...

What puzzled Burke was the question of “how any species of delight can be derived from a cause so apparently contrary to it.” I suggest that we may look for an ethnographic answer to this question among the supporters, hangers-on and diverse admirers of outlaw bikers, who take pleasure in being exposed, albeit at a safe distance, to the sub...

This catalogue, and the exhibition Artists’ Waste, Wasted Artists which it accompanies, is a result of a class, Making Ethnographic Exhibitions: Theory and Practice, I have taught at the University of Vienna in Spring/Summer 2017. Seeing my students excited about getting their hands dirty, both with ethnographic fieldwork among artists and with designing an actual exhibition, I have decided that their semester work, for a change, won’t be as if, but for real.
