Accumulation Now and Then
This concluding chapter returns to the work of the Filipino American artist Stephanie Syjuco in order to focus on the potentialities and limitations of the artist’s process of accumulating knowledge in the digital era. By focusing on the social media dimensions of Syjuco’s artistic and textile craft practices, the book concludes by moving out of the museum per se in order to consider the ramifications of the contemporary resurgence of crafting, DIY, and making practices, which challenge capitalist accumulation even as they are part of an era increasingly defined by the rise of so-called sharing and platform economies that mimic and appropriate these alternative anti-accumulative ecologies.
