Going Public by Boris Groys
Going Public by Boris Groys (Sternberg Press / 2010)
'If all things in the world can be considered as sources of aesthetic experience, then art no longer holds a privileged position. Rather, art comes between the subject and the world, and any aesthetic discourse used to legitimise art must also necessarily serve to undermine it. Following his recent books Art Power and the Communist Postscript, in Going Public Boris Groys looks to escape entrenched aesthetic and sociological understandings of art which always assume the position of the spectator, of the consumer.'
Very good condition paprback with clean, unmarked pages free from notes and underlinings.
