In the many years following global struggle II, the production and enlargement of huge household markets and comparatively solid economies allowed for mass intake on an exceptional scale, giving upward thrust to the patron society that exists at the present time. Many avant-garde artists explored the nexus among intake and aesthetics, wondering how consumerism impacts how we understand the area, position ourselves in it, and make experience of it through conception and emotion.

Delirious Consumption makes a speciality of the 2 greatest cultural economies in Latin the US, Mexico and Brazil, and analyzes how their artists and writers either embraced and resisted the spirit of improvement and growth that defines the patron second in past due capitalism. Sergio Delgado Moya appears to be like in particular on the paintings of David Alfaro Siqueiros, the Brazilian concrete poets, Octavio Paz, and Lygia Clark to figure out how each one of them arrived at varieties of aesthetic construction balanced among excessive modernism and client tradition. He reveals of their works a provocative positioning vis-à-vis city commodity capitalism, an ambivalent place that takes an guaranteed yet versatile stance opposed to commodification, alienation, and the politics of domination and inequality that defines industry economies. In Delgado Moya's view, those poets and artists entice uselessness, nonutility, and noncommunication—all markers of the aesthetic—while drawing at the phrases right to an international of intake and client culture.
