4.0 out of 5 stars Diverse, 24 April 2010
By 
This is a thought-provoking book made of a collection of essays already published elsewhere for the most part.

The different essays are
1. The Emancipated Spectator, 1
on the status of the spectator in front of the artwork, be it either theatrical or visual, and the relation between engaged scholarship and the people.

2. The Misadventures of Critical Thought, 25
a reflexive argument on the aftermath of the left-wing thinking on contemporary consumer society and the theory of the society of spectacle.

3. Aesthetic Separation, Aesthetic Community, 51
on the political dimension of aesthetics and artistic practice.

4. The Intolerable Image, 83
on the very concept, discussing in particular the argument about Didi-Huberman's analysis of concentration camps' photographs, and pictures of wartime and famines in Martha Rosler's and Alfredo Jaar's work.

5. The Pensive Image, 107
on the idea, the relation of the spectator to the work, in particular, the photographic work, and the making of sense.

Will need to read this a second time as it is an academic book but found it a decent read. It was recommended to me by my potential PhD supervisor.
