About this Item

Neu Neu/Restauflage - sofort versandbereit - ›Culture Is Everywhere‹ stellt Gegenstände vor, zu denen fast jeder eine Beziehung hat: Venus als Salz-und Pfefferstreuer, Jesusfiguren aus Plastik, Büsten von Prominenten - nutzloser Kitsch oder große Kunst Ein Buch, das die Gratwanderung zwischen einem Handbuch der Popkultur und dem kritischen Kommentar zur sogenannten hohen Kunst vollzieht. Die mehr als 200, von Victor Margolin auf der ganzen Welt erworbenen und von Patty Carroll anspruchsvoll fotografierten ›Kunst‹-Objekte werden wie die Sammlung eines etablierten Museums vorgestellt und kommentiert, um die Debatte um ›hohe‹ oder ›niedrige‹ Kunst, die die Museen seit jeher beschäftigt, weiter anzufachen. Synopsis Marilyn Monroe statuettes, Venus salt-and-pepper shakers, plastic Jesuses, and brides and grooms rescued from the tops of wedding cakes: useless kitsch or important cultural artifacts The answer depends on your tastes and tendencies. This volume presents a celebration of the highlights (and low-lights) of culture from the Museum of Contemporary Art. A collaboration between Victor Margolin, a design historian, and Patty Carroll, a photographer of pop culture, this study should help illuminate and challenge the distinctions between high and low art that have troubled museums throughout history. Drawn from Margolin's own collection acquired from souvenir shops, flea markets and antique stores from around the world, these nearly 200 common and rare objects are grouped into sections that correspond to his private 'museum': souvenirs, decorative art, folk art, commercial art, useful art, icons, and fashion. Each section is introduced by an informative text, and the objects are displayed with captions. Sprache: Englisch 144 pp. Deutsch. Bookseller Inventory # INF1000028455

About this title

Synopsis:

Marilyn Monroe statuettes, Venus salt-and-pepper shakers, plastic Jesuses, and brides and grooms rescued from the tops of wedding cakes: useless kitsch or important cultural artifacts? The answer depends on your tastes and tendencies. But readers of both camps will find much to ponder in this celebration of the highlights (and low-lights) from the Museum of Corn-temporary Art.

From the Publisher:

Written by Victor Margolin, one of the most important design historians working today, this book helps illuminate and challenge the distinctions between high and low art that have troubled museums throughout history. Drawn from the author’s own substantial collection acquired from souvenir shops, flea markets, and antique stores from around the world, these nearly two hundred common and rare objects are grouped into sections that correspond to his private "museum": souvenirs, decorative art, folk art, toys, icons, food, and fashion. Each section is introduced by an informative text, and the objects are compellingly displayed with extensive captions. Provocative, ingeniously designed, and fun to peruse, this unusual "exhibition catalog" is a refreshing addition to any art lover’s library, as well as to the continuing debate over what constitutes art.
