Abstract

Beginning with the editor's discussion of an episode of Project Runway and its relationship to contemporary theories of affect in art, my response to Todd Cronan's piece questions his application of affect theory in the particular instance of the episode he discusses and then draws it together with a discussion of the novel Baroni: A Journey, by Argentine author Sergio Chejfec, to explore critiques of the economic logic of neoliberalism through aesthetic objects.

Keywords
