Since its initial publication in 2005, Theory in Contemporary Art has established itself as an indispensable resource for scholars of art theory. Featuring an updated theoretical framework and the addition of numerous writings reflecting the latest developments in the field, the Second Edition captures the vibrancy of the contemporary art scene and the role of critical theory within it. The volume combines core texts from the first edition with state-of-the-art theoretical writings, and juxtaposes non-Western viewpoints with those from mainstream art centers. This edition also assembles a dazzling array of academics, artists, curators, and critics to explore a range of new topics on the art theory agenda, including: the proliferation of international biennials; genealogy of the term “contemporary art”; the relationship between aesthetics and politics; feminism and pornography; ecology and art; the Middle East and conflict studies; global capitalism and Eastern European art; gender and war; and technology.
