Scenarios of the Art World includes Delier’s essays and interviews about his works. Delier’s debate over the concrete examples and situations of the relationship between art and politics aims to question the forms of artistic, critical and political arguments.
Delier focuses on the call for the boycotts in Turkey and the world, and the political and ethical discourses that come with these calls. He argues that the “art vs. capitalism” idea, which is pushed by the language of these calls fundamentally works as a win-win scenario. Delier’s book emphasizes the handicaps of playing the game “bad neoliberal capitalism” on one side and “good activist art” on the other. Delier not only discusses the boycott and strike tactics, but also traces diffferent methods of opposition and insurgencies from the Italian football player Mario Balotelli to uniquely-designed war plane, from the analysis of a collective self-censor case to the readings of the art fairs.
