Everything you've been advised approximately creativity is wrong.

From line managers, company CEOs, city designers, academics, politicians, mayors, advertisers or even our family and friends, the message is 'be creative'. Creativity is heralded because the motive force of our modern society; celebrated as agile, revolutionary and freeing. it's the spring of the data economic system and shapes the towns we inhabit. It even defines our politics. What might be flawed with this?

In this very good, counter intuitive blast Oli mold calls for that we reconsider the tale we're being offered. in the back of the newness, he exhibits that creativity is a slightly hidden kind of neoliberal appropriation. it's a regime that prioritizes person good fortune over collective flourishing. It refuses to know whatever - activity, position, individual - that's not ecocnomic. And it affects on every little thing round us: the areas the place we paintings, the way in which we're controlled, how we spend our rest time.

Is there an alternate? mold bargains a thorough redefinition of creativity, one embedded within the inspiration of collective flourishing, outdoor the tyranny of revenue. daring, passionate and clean, Against Creativity, is a well timed correction to the doctrine of our times.
