Product Description


"The everyday might be everywhere but this astutely edited, accessible and comprehensively documented collection brings contemporary art practice and the ordinary into rewarding realignment for the first time." - Alan Read, author of Theatre and Everyday Life: An Ethics of Performance "Stephen Johnstone has put together a highly instructive and page-turning selection of some of the most intriguing writings examining the aesthetics of the everyday. Not only this, he also creates a revealing journey through some of the most pressing issues confronting us today." - Jens Hoffmann, Director, CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, San Francisco

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
i bought this book to use in seminar's at university, thinking i would use it for a few weeks then add it to my pile of unused bookes in the corner of my room. i was very pleased to be proven wrong and it has helped my research in my practice (contemporary) who knew the 'everyday' could be so interesting!
