Praise

Culture Strike is a must-read account of how museums have positioned themselves as progressive while working hard to maintain the status quo. Written by someone who knows the ropes and drawing on interviews and conversations from all corners of the art world, it is a road map of how we’ve gotten where we are, a blueprint for change, and a love letter to museums for their potential to change the world if only we would think differently about them.”
—Aruna D’souza, author of Whitewalling

“In this brave and bracing book, Laura Raicovich critiques our cultural institutions with compassion, curiosity, and conviction. Through insightful case studies and compelling history lessons, Culture Strike examines the many ways museums are implicated in capitalism, colonialism, and white supremacy, recognizing the profound power imbalances and biases that plague the sector without losing sight of the radical democratic possibility that also exists therein. By shredding the myth of neutrality and universalism that prop up an unjust status quo, Raicovich challenges us to tap into our creativity to imagine and finally build a truly public, egalitarian, and inclusive cultural sphere we deserve.”
—Astra Taylor, author of Democracy May Not Exist, but We’ll Miss It when It’s Gone

“Laura Raicovich’s incisive critiques and exposures are not just about taking sides or taking down. Her articulations are enveloped by an impassioned understanding that to survive meaningfully you need the heart to evolve and the soul intact.”
—Mel Chin, artist and MacArthur Fellow
