Abstract:

How does structural economic change look and feel? How are such changes normalized? Who represents hope? Who are the cautionary tales? 'Unfinished Business' argues that U.S. deindustrialization cannot be understood apart from issues of race, and specifically apart from images of, and works by and about African Americans that represent or resist normative or aberrant relationships to work and capital in transitional times. It insists that Michael Jackson's performances and coverage of his life, plays featuring Detroit, plans for the city's postindustrial revitalization, and Detroit installations The Heidelberg Project and Mobile Homestead have something valuable to teach us about three decades of structural economic transition in the U.S., particularly on the changing nature of work and capitalism between the mid-1980s and 2016.
