" Neoliberalism itself is the most powerful instrument of regulation because it kind of includes everything: to just push things over into the economy, into the economic sphere, so everything can be kind of economized.What we are witnessing now is that even dissidence, especially creative dissidence, is incorporated in seconds; how a certain lifestyle of difference, alternative and creativity has become a leading figure for how neoliberal individuals have to behave. So in a positive term I could say that how we work, how we live, how we communicate and how we operate in the field of design could be something that has a relevance now. We should try to critically look at our old practice as designers, architects, urban planners, artists, whatever we call ourselves, and to think about our partnership with power and market players. "
