Abstract: The 'still building' metaphor perfectly describes a hegemonic structure. Seemingly unchanging and immobile, it is an edifice which appears still. But it is constantly changing, constantly adapting, still continuously building - even while it appears not to. The most fascinating attribute of a hegemonic structure is how hard it is to discern its true nature: that it is so difficult to see it for what it truly is, and so easy to dismiss it for what it appears ostensibly to be. It is not difficult to set the state up as the nemesis of progress in the arts. One simply has to use the same tired arguments of the government's myriad regulatory controls and complicated bureaucratic procedures to make the state appear to be an unstoppable fascist machine out to crush all dissent and independent thought. But the nature of the state's hegemonic dominance is far more subtle and complex.
