I am such a huge fan of Thames and Hudson's World of Art series and The Body in Contemporary Art I have to say is one of my favourites. Concise and to the point, the information on artists who use bodies in various ways was fascinating. As a student studying Photography, it really helped (and I hate this word) inspire me. I learned about many different artists, some of whom I had never heard before, whilst others were old favourites of mine. In the end if you are interested in art in general this is an easy, well informed read that I thoroughly enjoyed (which doesn't happen a lot when studying for a degree!)

An excellent new book which looks generally at the use of the body in contemporary art.Sally O'Reilly has used a great selection of artists to explore the subject and discusses some useful information about their work .There is a good selection of performance ,video and other artists techniques shown to look at why the variety and the execution of their works make contemporary art what it is today.

Very different but a good grounding for exploring the Art of the Body
Slightly different to what I thought, though very thought provoking.
Good for a student of Art
