TEXTE ZUR KUNST NO. 97 takes bohemia as its theme. Exile and marginality, network availability, mass versus subcultural identities, privilege, opting (versus dropping) out – the fading of bohemia’s appeal is no doubt linked in part to a growing preference for the web’s promise of total-connectivity. Though could another factor be at work here too: an underlying sense that perhaps the real displacement and disenfranchisement after which romantic notions of ‘bohemia’ were later formed may again be a very real threat?
