2. In the epigraph that begins this chapter, Adorno is referencing Hegel’s discus-
sion of “the One and the Many” in Wissenschaft der Logik (1812). See G. W. F.

(London: Allen and Unwin, 1969), 163–78.

Parker, The Subversive Stitch.
5. For a useful survey of collaborative and collective practice in the post–Second
World War period, see Stimson and Sholette, Collectivism after Modernism.
6. See, e.g., Butler and Mark, WACK! Art and the Feminist Revolution. I discuss
Suzanne Lacy’s work in greater detail in my Conversation Pieces.

8. For useful overviews, see Harvey, A Brief History of Neoliberalism; and Bauman,
Globalization. It was the neoconservative sociologist Daniel Bell who predicted

the result of increasing economic and scientific rationalization would be a
thirst for transcendence among the population at large—a demand for a new
spiritual framework to give order, meaning, and a moral justification to the
culture of unrepentant individualism and hedonistic self- interest promulgated
