A chapter of a book that conflates two articles written by me.

Renzo Martens’ provocative film Episode III: Enjoy Poverty (2008) remains a key work about contemporary art’s relationship to exploitative economies. This publication explores the work’s legacy and how it relates to the politics of representation, uses of the documentary form, art criticism, the deployment of humanitarian aid, the impact of extractive forms of globalization, and the neoliberal politics of decolonization.
