Art and Globalisation

What would utopia look like?

Destabilized identity-- mentioned in the chapter. As globalisation destabilizes a sense of identity, it may also paradoxically enable people to create their own identities.

Is it a good idea to further internet access to countries that have limited access? Given all we know about the perils of increased globalization, should we prompt others to engage the world in a similar way?

Is it possible for a person from a colonized country (current or former) to make work without speaking of globalization?

To what extent can globalism be seen as a privileged activity?

Is globalism an unavoidable influence on artists raised in the information age?
