Joois writes: ‘as a critical concept and ral-
lying cry, “precarity” has perhaps not shaken of f this ambiguity (and this is
something to reflect on). In contemporary political theory as well as “politicalart” “precarity” is both rejected as the perverted result of neo-liberal, global
capitalism and in a way glamourized: the precarious individual is, as the British
sociologist Guy Standing calls it, celebrated as a modern hero: always moving,
always connected, devoid of a stable identity etc.’ Joost de Bloois, ‘Making Ends
Meet: Precarity, Art and Political
open to any and everyone’ writes O’Sullivan in his ‘Notes
Towards a Minor Art Practice’.9 I especially like the mention to sickness and
frailness and will write more about it, in particular in connection to disabil-
ity and ableism later on. While the languages were not intended as works of
art, they are—much like politicalart—socially engaged (and creative) ways
of communication and speaking against the status quo.
