- On Claire Bishop's Artificial Hells --> Open, interactive, and inconclusive, the work is not like a complete object but more like a "work in progress." --> Such a work seems to have emerged from a creative misreading of post-structuralist theory, rather than a continuous reinterpretation of an artwork, the artwork itself should be in an endless wave. --> There are many problems with this concept, especially in a state of deliberately unstable work, it is difficult to consider the identity of a work. Another problem is that the "lab" can easily become a marketable leisure and entertainment venue. One might argue that in this context, the project-based development plan and artist entry plan began to coincide with an “experience economy”. --> The market strategy of the "experience economy" is to look for the replacement of goods and services with personal experiences that are written and set up. --> However, no one can tell what the audience can get from this creative experience that essentially installs activities at work.

Claire Bishop's Artificial Hells
The complicated play of identificatory and dis-identificatory mechanisms at work in the
content, construction, and location of the Bataille Monument were radically and disruptively thought-provoking:
Thecomplicated play of identificatory and dis-identificatory mechanisms at work in the content, construction, and location of the Bataille Monument were radically and disruptively thought-provoking: The independent stance that Hirschhorn asserts in his work—though produced
collaboratively, his art is the product of a single artist’s vision—implies the readmit-
tance of a degree of autonomy to art. Likewise, the viewer is no longer coerced
into fulfilling the artist’s interactive requirements, but is presupposed as a subject
of independent thought, which is the essential prerequisite for political action:
“having reflections and critical thoughts is to get active, posing questions is to
come to life.”63 The Bataille Monument shows that installation and performance art
now find themselves at a significant distance from the historic avant-garde calls to
collapse art and life.
“As the social is penetrated by negativity—that is, by antagonism—it does not attain the status
of transparency, of full presence, and the objectivity of its identities is permanently subverted. From
here onward, the impossible relation between objectivity and negativity has become constitutive of the
social” (Laclau and Mouffe, Hegemony, p. 129).
