Disciplines

For the disciplined, it used to be a simple matter of teaching the self how not to do what it wanted, or how not to want what it did, Sportsmen and physicians subdivided into microcultures, to great applause. The arts, meanwhile, convolved: Painting begat performance, music begat media, the live arts merged and by now the amalgams have obscured all but the most strident segregates. Was it worth it?

Our contention was this: “For the disciplined, it used to be a simple matter of teaching the self how not to do what it wanted, or how not to want what it did, Sportsmen and physicians subdivided into microcultures, to great applause. The arts, meanwhile, convolved: Painting begat performance, music begat media, the live arts merged and by now the amalgams have obscured all but the most strident segregates. Was it worth it?”

The Disciplines issue includes work by fifteen artists:
