Has something fundamental changed in the art world in the last few years?
Or, let's say: since the '70s, since the outset of western capitalism's ongoing crisis? Have mechanisms set in that narrow the range of what artists/critics/curators
can do?

«target: autonopop» answers yes to all these questions and takes aim at the commercial art gallery circuit, its products, and the somewhat less (overtly) market-oriented art-institutional context. Safe generalizations that spare people's feelings and preserve confortable arrangements are not on the agenda; instead:
a regularly updated process in which art is 'consumed' in a different way.

«target: autonopop» examines the articulation between the market/gallery and institutional spheres, their cooptational and coercive instances, their aversion to any critique which has real consequences.

Visual, social, and historical investigations supplement a project which is not merely theoretical: to retrace and critique the art-circuit's tacit dogma of ambivalence and non-oppositionality. On the curatorial and production level, «target: autonopop» has been fostering and generating activity which avails itself to exactly those 'unartistic', unambiguous and frontal means when necessary, be it in an art or
a non-art context.
