Product Overview

What is the value of art? "Value, Art, Politics," the second volume in a series dedicated to the latest developments in the understanding of art practice and theory, offers a range of responses to this timeless question. The essays assembled here, including contributions from major thinkers such as T. J. Clark and Albert Boime, approach the issue from the broad perspective of social history while looking back at the key theoretical concepts that have dominated art history over the last forty years.
In addition to this historical view, "Value, Art, Politics" also addresses a host of contemporary disciplinary shifts that point to the next phase of art theory. New feminist critiques of aesthetics, the impact of postcolonial theory, the current status of traditional media like painting and sculpture, the potential of new visual technologies, and the utility of Marxist criticism all play a part in these incisive essays. A unique and richly illustrated investigation into the concept of value, this book is also a coherent and critical guide to the development of the study of art.
