Disrupting Business explores some of the interconnections between art,
activism and the business concept of disruptive innovation. With a
backdrop of the crisis in financial capitalism and austerity cuts in the
cultural sphere, the idea is to focus on potential art strategies in
relation to a broken economy. In a perverse way, we ask whether this
presents new opportunities for cultural producers to achieve more
autonomy over their production process. If it is indeed possible, or
desirable, what alternative business models emerge? This book is
concerned broadly with business as material for reinvention, including
critical writing and examples of art/activist projects.

Contributors include Saul Albert, Christian Ulrik Andersen, Franco
"Bifo" Berardi, Heath Bunting, Paolo Cirio, Baruch Gottlieb, Brian
Holmes, Geert Lovink, Dmytri Kleiner, Georgios Papadopolous, Soren Bro
Pold, Oliver Ressler, Kate Rich, René Ridgway, Guido Segni, Stevphen
Shukaitis, Nathaniel Tkacz, and Marina Vishmidt.
