READING: Themes of Contemporary Art: Visual Art after 1980 (Fourth Edition) is a unique introduction to eight important themes that have recurred in art over the past few decades-identity, the body, time, memory, place, language, science, and spirituality. Jean Robertson and Craig McDaniel provide anintriguing and accessible guide that will stimulate students, gallery goers, and other readers to think actively and critically about visual art from 1980 to the present. The opening chapter provides a concise overview of the period, analyzing how key changes (the rise of digital media, a growingawareness of globalization, the influence of theory, the use of the Internet, and interactions with everyday culture) have resulted in an art world with dramatically expanded boundaries. Each of the remaining eight chapters features an introduction to one theme; a brief look at historical precedentsand influences; a detailed analysis of how contemporary artists have responded to and embodied aspects of the theme in specific works; and two in-depth and fascinating profiles of artists who have extensively explored aspects of the theme in his or her work.Generously illustrated in full color, Themes of Contemporary Art: Visual Art after 1980 (Fourth Edition) covers an international array of artists working with an immense variety of materials, techniques, subjects, and forms. A timeline that situates contemporary art in the context of major events inworld history, art, and popular culture enhances the engaging, readable text.

READING: Daar waar Will Gompertz ophoudt, gaat Sarah Thornton verder: waarom is moderne kunst, kunst? Een briljante inkijk in de kunstwereld aan de hand van de belangrijkste hedendaagse kunstenaars van dit moment Sarah Thornton volgde jarenlang 33 beroemde kunstenaars en was tijdens haar bezoeken aan hen als een vlieg op de muur. Ze ontmoet de politiek geëngageerde Ai Weiwei voor en na zijn gevangenschap, en ze spreekt met Jeff Koons over zijn rijke klanten in Londen, Frankfurt en Abu Dhabi. De lezer maakt verder kennis met andere wereldberoemde kunstenaars, onder wie Damian Hirst, Marina Abramovic, Cindy Sherman en Lena Dunham. Waarom maken zij kunst en wat betekenen hun kunstwerken? In Wat is een kunstenaar? stelt Thornton de vraag of een kunstenaar bij uitstek een ondernemer is of het kunstenaarschap juist een roeping is. Is het een filosofische bezigheid of is het puur vermaak? Thornton is de perfecte gids, die de wereld van de moderne kunst voor iedereentoegankelijk maakt. Na het lezen van Wat is een kunstenaar? wordt de kunst waar je eerst je schouders voor ophaalde opeens bijzonder interessant en vermakelijk. De pers over Wat is een kunstenaar? ‘Sarah Thornton is de Jane Goodall van de kunstwereld.’ The Washington Post ‘Een meesterlijk portret van 33 kunstenaars.’ Publishers Weekly ‘Zal zelfs de doorgewinterde kunstliefhebber versteld doen staan.’ San Francisco Chronicle ‘Een pageturner over de kunstwereld.’ Globe and Mail ‘Hoewel het boek over de modern kunst gaat, zijn de thema’s universeel.’ The Bookseller ‘Geestdriftig, scherpzinnig en origineel.’ Financial Times ‘Briljant en vermakelijk.’ The Guardian

Pages 240
ISBN 9781780232294
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Art Since the ’80s, a new series from Reaktion Books, seeks to offer compelling surveys of popular themes in contemporary art. In the first book in the series, Gill Perry reveals how the house and the idea of home have inspired a range of imaginative and playful works by artists across the globe. Exploring how artists have engaged with this theme in different contexts—from mobile homes and beach houses to haunted houses and broken homes—Playing at Home shows that our relationship with houses involves complex responses in which gender, race, class, and status overlap, and that through these relationships we turn a house into a home. Perry looks at the works of numerous artists, including Tracey Emin, Rachel Whiteread, Michael Landy, Mike Kelley, and Peter Garfield, as well as the work of artists who travel across continents and see home as a shifting notion, such as Do-Ho-Suh and Song Dong. She also engages with the work of philosophers and cultural theorists from Walter Benjamin and Gaston Bachelard to Johan Huizinga and Henri Lefebvre, who inform our understanding of living and dwelling. Ultimately, she argues that irony, parody, and play are equally important in our interpretations of these works on the home. With over one hundred images, Playing at Home covers a wide range of art and media in a fascinating look at why there’s no place like home.

READING: The book examines the contemporary art system with a broad and systematic approach, through the application of models of microeconomics and industrial organizations. By breaking down the traditional barriers between different academic disciplines such as art and economics, this book offers a unique opportunity to grasp the complexities of the contemporary art world and provides the tools to conduct a structural analysis of that market. The result is an in-depth analysis of the contemporary art market from an interdisciplinary perspective. While it is not a textbook in the strictest sense, the book offers a concise and effective overview of all actors in the art system, and provides supporting data and valuable information, both conceptual and practical. It is therefore a text that can be used by students wishing to better understand the complex dynamics that govern the contemporary art market, but also by cultural managers, collectors, potential art investors or simply art lovers who need a quick reference.​

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Buitenlandse toeristen die in de zeventiende eeuw Holland bezochten, meldden vol verbazing dat zelfs tamelijk eenvoudige burgers schilderijen aan de muur hadden. In geen enkel ander Europees land was er zo'n levendige kunsthandel. Door het grote aanbod was er sprake van een moordende concurrentie. Artistiek talent alleen was voor een kunstenaar niet voldoende om van zijn bedrijf een succes te maken, hij moest ook ondernemer zijn. In dit boek beschrijft Marion Boers de distributiekanalen die werden ontwikkeld om het ruime en zeer diverse aanbod aan schilderijen op een aantrekkelijke manier in de markt te zetten. Veel kunstenaars hadden een winkel waarin ze originelen en kopieën uit hun eigen werkplaats verkochten. Daarnaast speelde de professionele kunsthandel een belangrijke rol, al dan niet in combinatie met amusement (loterijen) of spanning (veilingen). Dankzij het wijdvertakte netwerk van verkoopmogelijkheden kon kunst een echte rage worden.

READING: In his book The Legacy of the Civil War, Robert Penn Warren remarked that "the Civil War is, for the American imagination, the great single event of our history." This volume reconsiders whether, fifty years later, Warren's influential claim still holds true. Essays from scholars in art, literature, and history examine how the Civil War is represented and interpreted in contemporary culture. They look at the works of more than thirty artists and writers as well as multiple political movements to reveal the many and provocative ways in which Americans engage the Civil War today, including chapters on the importance of Abraham Lincoln to Barack Obama's presidential campaign, controversies over the Confederate flag, and the proliferation of "Juneteenth" observances. Special attention is paid to the works of African Americans and white southerners, for whom the Civil War was a revolutionary and defining moment. Such prominent scholars as Robert H. Brinkmeyer Jr., W. Fitzhugh Brundage, Kirk Savage, and Elizabeth Young explore the works of major artists and less well-known figures, including Bobbie Ann Mason, Kara Walker, Dario Robleto, and John Huddleston. The authors repeatedly find that Americans today openly and playfully manipulate familiar images of the Civil War to explore the malleability of traditional social categories such as national identity, gender, and race. With the sesquicentennial of the Civil War upon us, this collection continues the conversation Warren began fifty years ago, albeit in unorthodox and challenging ways, to offer fresh and stimulating perspectives on the war's presence in the collective imagination of the nation.
