Library Shelf Location 08.AMBR
Publication Date 2013
Description The work of art has often been a battleground—its decorative and formal aspects positioned against its nature as an embodiment of cognitive acts. Leonardo da Vinci’s claim that art be a “cosa mentale” is winning at last: recent debates around art schools and their methods, of which this book is a vast survey, demonstrate that, now more than ever, art is considered the result of a thinking process. With texts by John Aiken, Mara Ambrožic, Ute Meta Bauer, Carol Becker, Franco Berardi, Jeremiah Day, Paolo Garbolino, Mika Hannula, Mary Jane Jacob, Jan Kaila, Lev Kreft, Cornelia Lauf, Paolo Legrenzi and Alessandra Jacomuzzi, Hongjohn Lin, Sarat Maharaj, Marco De Michelis, Suzana Milevska, Simon Njami, Hans Ulrich Obrist, John Rajchman, Gertrud Sandqvist, Henk Slager, Hito Steyerl, Chiara Vecchiarelli, Angela Vettese, Mick Wilson.
