Through an analysis of a well-publicised intervention into the exhibition Socialdress – Power to the People in October 2013 at the Alkatraz Gallery, which operates within Autonomous Cul¬tural Centre Metelkova City in Ljubljana, the article argues that mainstream artwork cannot stay sheltered from protest (re)ac¬tions solely thanks to the fact that it is part of the hegemony of the art system. Namely, in the context of the movement towards increasingly radical capitalist devastation, a link is established between numerous manifestations of resistance, including the protest against the commodification of popular uprisings’ slogans, which opens up the perspective of understanding art as a phenomenon without the status of difference, which would grant it any kind of privilege.
