              The Value of Critique: Exploring the Interrelations of Value, Critique, and Artistic Labour
               

              The Value of Critique: Exploring the Interrelations of Value, Critique, and Artistic Labour (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The Value of Critique casts its gaze on the two dominant modes of passing judgment in art--critique and value (or evaluation). The act of critique has long held sway in the world of art theory but has recently been increasingly abandoned in favor of evaluation, which advocates al...ternate modes of judgment aimed at finding the intrinsic value of a given work rather than picking apart its intentions and relative success. This book's contributors explore the relationship between these two practices, finding that one cannot exist with the other. As soon as a critic decides an object is worthy enough of their interest and time to critique it, they have imbued that object with a certain value. Similarly, theories of value are typically marked by a critical impetus: as much as critique takes part in the construction of evaluations, bestowing something with value can then trigger critiques. Assembling essays from an international array of authors, this book is the first to put value, critique, and artistic labor in conversation with one another, making clear just how closely all three are related.

              Canvases and Careers Today - Criticism and Its Markets

              Canvases and Careers Today - Criticism and Its Markets (Paperback)

              By Birnbaum, Daniel; Graw, Isabelle; Baker, George; Rottmann, Andre; Burton, Johanna

              Canvases and Careers Today brings together contributions from the eponymous conference organized by the Institut f r Kunstkritik, Frankfurt am Main. Its goal is to provide deeper insights and more complexity to current debates on the relationship between criticism, art, and the m...arket. It was especially interesting for us to watch a kind of transatlantic divide happening. While the US-American participants mostly declared criticism as obsolete while hoping for turning its weakness into a strength, most European participants departed from the opposite diagnosis: that criticism has never been as strong as it is today, since it is now part of a knowledge-based economy. --Isabelle Graw/Daniel Birnbaum Contributors George Baker, Johanna Burton, Merlin Carpenter, Melanie Gilligan, Isabelle Graw, Tom Holert, Branden W.

              Blending memoir and social critique, elegantly written essays explore a world that feel different, from Brexit and Trump to #MeToo and the death of parents. This book merges memoir and social critique in an original fashion. By combining personal observations with a general syste...mic analysis, it seeks to propose a new genre of writing. Isabelle Graw manages to capture radical political, social, and cultural changes that have occurred since 2014 in elegantly written observations, also analyzing how these macro-shifts reach into her own life. Addressing topics that range from Brexit, Trump, and a general rightward turn to #MeToo, men with beards, and Balenciaga, Gaw registers the symptoms of a world that clearly feels different. Meditating on irretrievable personal losses, she describes how we find ourselves literally in another world after the death of our parents. With a theme of mourning running throughout, her book is an attempt at exposing and analyzing painful emotions.

              In response to recent developments in pictorial practice and critical discourse, Painting beyond Itself: The Medium in the Post-medium Condition seeks new ways to approach and historicize the question of the medium. Reaching back to the earliest theoretical and institutional defi...nitions of painting, this book--based on a conference at Harvard University in 2013--focuses on the changing role of materiality in establishing painting as the privileged practice, discourse, and institution of modernity. Myriad conceptions of the medium and its specificity are explored by an international group of scholars, critics, and artists. Painting beyond Itself is a forum for rich historical, theoretical, and practice-grounded conversation. Contributors Carol Armstrong, Benjamin H. D. Buchloh, Sabeth Buchmann, Ren D moris, Isabelle Graw, David Joselit, Jutta Koether, Ewa Lajer-Burcharth, Jacqueline Lichtenstein, Julie Mehretu, Matt Saunders, Amy Sillman Institut f r Kunstkritik Series
