ABOUT THIS BOOK
Art today is often practiced in perfect conformity with the neoliberal zeitgeist, often even denying its own radical potential. What is Contemporary Art? lucidly examines the relationship between art and politics in our time. Addressing the heart of the political-aesthetic debate, Alexander Garcia Düttmann shows how the radicality of contemporary art actually serves to strengthen today’s political ideologies, ultimately frustrating rather than propelling real social change as a result.
