Product Description


"Drucker treats some of the most controversial and compelling art of the nineties and after to the panoply of available theory, but keeps her heart, ears, and eyes open too. Those who know Drucker's creative artists' books and her long history of attention to the interaction of words and images in her academic writing on post modern art won't be surprised by either the innovative fluidity of her arguments or the range and richness of her sources. This is a subtly theorized, readable, and convincing treatment of some of the most troubling aspects of millennial art."--Ann Gibson, author of Abstract Expressionism: Other Politics

Everything about the book looks great. I can't believe I got it cheaper as a hardback compared to a paperback through a different company. Thank you!

Speed read this after the first couple chapters. It weren't bad, but it weren't interesting...enough.
