Product Overview

The fifth book in the series, this volume concludes this extraordinary publishing project by analyzing the fascinating and controversial phenomena of contemporary art. This volume presents ten chapters, each written by an international expert. To mention just a few: exhibition curator Nicolas Bourriad discusses installations, video and action art in the post-media age. Gabriella Belli, director of the Mart of Trento and Rovereto, tells of the "meaning" of the contemporary museum. Paco Barrag?n, cultural broker, describes art fairs and explains what is understood by the term neobiennialism. And ample space is also devoted to the critical definitions of contemporary art, to the art market and the new way of collecting, to the relationship between art and politics, to the new, confusing frontiers of photography. Each of these major chapters is followed, in alphabetical order, by the biographies of dozens of contemporary artists, illustrated through their most significant works.
