David Harvey

David Harvey is a pretty great thinker, in fact I might say necessary for anyone who wants to understand what’s really going on in the world today. Is it important for an abstract artist to care about that? If they want abstraction to be something more than a cute commodity I guess it is, though there is no way to specify how any knowledge should be put to work by art. I just found a good article by Harvey here. My own encounter with him was mentioned in an earlier post. He is trained as a geographer, and that’s good because it proves that one doesn’t have to be a professional economist to have something to say about the way the world is organized. In fact there’s a lot of evidence that economists are among those responsible for the mess. Rescue economics from the economists.
