Sholette lays out transparent examples of art’s deep involvement in capitalism: the dizzying costs completed by means of artists who pander to the monetary elite, the proliferation of museums that give a contribution to worldwide festival among towns so as to allure capital, and the unusual dating among artwork and rampant gentrification that restructures the city panorama.

With a preface via famous writer Lucy R. Lippard and an creation by means of theorist Kim Charnley, Delirium and Resistance draws on over thirty years of severe debates and practices either in and past the artwork international to historicize and recommend for the artwork activist culture that radically—and, from time to time, deliriously—entangles the visible arts with political struggles.
