Abstract

The essay is a brief set of reflections by the author on his book 24/7 five years after its publication and on its possible continuing relevance for artists. It notes the worsening of what the book identified as features of the non-stop operations of global capitalism, including intensifying environmental devastation, widening economic inequality, the deathliness of billionaire culture, and the collapse of longstanding forms of social solidarity and mutual support.
