Présentation de l'éditeur :

L'esthétisation du monde Vivre à l'âge du capitalisme artiste On connaît l. a. rengaine, tant elle semble réaliste : richesse du monde, appauvrissement des existences ; triomphe du capital, liquidation des savoir-vivre ; surpuissance de l. a. finance, « prolétarisation » et unification des modes de vie, par l'industrialisation de l. a. camelote kitsch et des produits jetables, interchangeables, insignifiants - le capitalisme est une computing device de déchéance esthétique et d'enlaidissement du monde. Est-ce si sûr ? Le sort, l. a. beauté, l. a. mobilisation des goûts et des sensibilités s'imposent chaque jour davantage comme des impératifs stratégiques des marques : le capitalisme d'hyperconsommation est un mode de creation esthétique. Dans les industries de consommation, le layout, los angeles mode, l. a. publicité, l. a. décoration, le cinéma, le show-business, des produits chargés de séduction sont créés en masse. Ils véhiculent des impacts et de los angeles sensibilité, ils agencent un univers esthétique proliférant et hétérogène par l'éclectisme des kinds qui s'y déploient. Partout le réel se construit comme une photo en y intégrant une measurement esthétique-émotionnelle devenue centrale dans l. a. compétition que se livrent les marques. Tel est le capitalisme artiste, lequel se caractérise par le poids grandissant des marchés de l. a. sensibilité, par un travail systématique de stylisation des biens et des lieux marchands, par l'intégration généralisée de l'art, du « glance » et de l'affect dans l'univers consumériste. Créant un paysage économique mondial chaotique tout en stylisant l'univers du quotidien, le capitalisme est moins un ogre dévorant ses propres enfants qu'un Janus à deux visages.
