From the Back Cover:

Few phenomena in our lives are as inescapable as what we commonlyrefer to as art—yet few concepts are more elusive than theidea of art itself. So what does ‘art’ look liketoday? And what is its fate? Art Is Not What You Think ItIs offers a series of critical incursions into the currentstate of debate on the idea of art—making manifest what hasbeen largely missing or unsaid in those discussions.

Revealing how conventional thinking about art is largely basedon misconceptions about its history, Preziosi and Farago call for aradical rethink of the subject and its relationship to a wide swathof today’s world—from religion and philosophy toculture and politics. The authors probe a variety of issues,including the dangers of art and trap of the visual; the frame thatblinds us; deconstruction of the agencies of art; the intersectionsof the local and global; the breach of art and religion, andcommodifying artistry. Provocative and groundbreaking, Art isNot What You Think It Is will reshape conventional assumptionsabout the nature, meaning, and ultimate fate of art intoday’s world.
