Product Description

Review

'... this book is successful; thoughtful, informative, and provocative, it can be recommended to artists, art critics, art historians and other members of the artworld in addition to philosophers and aestheticians. Supplemented by material appropriate to the level, it would work well in either an introductory or an advanced course in philosophy of art.' - Philosophy in Review

'Who's Afraid of Conceptual Art? is a philosophically substantive guide through the controversies and values of conceptual art executed with wit and intellectual verve. Accessible to all, it is a must read for anyone interested in the nature and significance of conceptual art.' – Matthew Kieran, University of Leeds, UK

'Conceptual art has perplexed and provoked philosophers and art lovers for decades. Armed with perfectly chosen examples, clear and engaging arguments, and a genuine sympathy for their subject, Goldie and Schellekens explain why we are right to be perplexed and then show us how to appreciate the ingenuity and sheer craftiness of some of the most infamous and yet captivating specimens of recent art.' – Dominic McIver Lopes, University of British Columbia, Canada

'This very lively and stimulating book is the perfect cure for those who suffer from an uneasiness, or even a phobia, concerning conceptual art. Goldie and Schellekens do a wonderful job in making the philosophical issues accessible to readers lacking a specialized background. The treatment of conceptual art is well-informed, sympathetic yet critical, and liberally illustrated with engaging discussion of challenging examples.' - David Davies, McGill University, Canada

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very good, readable, accessible account of a complex topic.It is aimed at non-philosophers but makes a good read regardless of one's ability in philosophy. G and S make a good stab at explaining why many people find conceptual art so puzzling and frustrating. They provide many helpful examples and succeed in teasing out the many philosophical aspects of the conceptual art debate clearly. My only complaint, and it's a small one, is that they lapse into a rather patronising school-teacherly tone occasionally.

Difficult subject clearly explained with illustrations. Essential reading for all those art students being pressed to have ideas without using traditional skills.

Arrived quickly.
