    A brief essay on the prevailing terms of engagement today for artist-scholars and the attendant blind spots encountered in the processes and protocols associated with the editioning of works of artistic scholarship. As a critique of cognitive capitalism, the essay infers, through mostly negative means, an exit for artist-scholars through an elective disavowal of authorial privileges and any association with Capitalism in its, arguably, worst and most dangerous phases. The composition of the essay coincided with (as outtake) the completion of the manuscript for the monograph, Works for Works: Book 1, Useless Beauty (Earth, Milky Way: Punctum, 2022).
