Value, Art, Politics
Criticism, Meaning, and Interpretation after the End of Postmodernism
Distributed for Liverpool University Press
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.
