What are the conditions of production of the activity of criticism? What is its function in a time that privileges communicability and accessibility over content? How to write art criticism when critical distance no longer exists? These and other questions underlie this essay that exposes criticism within the assembly line of the market, the cultural/publishing industry, the academy and the media. Criticism survives today under the mandate of profitability and publicity, forgetting its once lofty transformative aims. A journey through its history and the observation of its mutations can offer us an X-ray of late capitalism and its most recent consequences, in order to reactivate its full potential.
