    Cambridge University Press 1990; US$ 44.00

    At a time when a pile of bricks is displayed in a museum, when music is composed for performance underwater, and the boundaries between popular and fine art are fluid, conventional understandings of art are strained in describing what art is, what it includes or excludes, whether and how it should be evaluated, and what importance should be assigned... more...

  • Zeitgenössische Kunst in Chinaby Lydia Haustein

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 70.00

    The dramatic upsurge in engagement with contemporary Chinese art reflects tectonic shifts in global economic and political power. Contemporary Chinese art is not only a seismograph for unprecedented upheavals in China, but also questions the interpretive sovereignty of Western theory. more...

The artist is allowed absolute... more...

  • The Mind of the Artistby Laurence Binyon; George Clausen

    The Floating Press 1909; US$ 5.99

    The Mind of the Artist speaks for itself, and really requires no word of introduction. These opinions as a whole have a harmony and consistency, and announce clearly that the directing impulse must be a desire for expression, that art is a language, and that the thing to be said is of more importance than the manner of saying it. This desire for expression... more...
