The last few decades have witnessed an explosion in ideas and theories on art. Art itself has never been so topical, but much recent thinking remains inaccessible and difficult to use. This book assesses the work of those thinkers (including artists) who have had a major impact on making, criticizing and interpreting art since the 1960s. With entries by leading international experts, this book presents a concise, critical appraisal of thinkers and their ideas about art and its place in the wider cultural context. A guide to the key thinkers who shape today's world of art, this book is a vital reference for anyone interested in modern and contemporary art, its history, philosophy and practice. Contributors include: Theodor Adorno; Roland Barthes; Georges Bataille; Jean Baudrillard; Walter Benjamin; Jm Bernstein; Pierre Bourdieu; Nicolas Bourriaud; Benjamin Buchloh; Daniel Buren; Judith Butler; Noel Carroll; Stanley Cavell; Tj Clark; Arthur C. Danto; Gilles Deleuze; Jacques Derrida; George Dickie; Thierry De Duve; James Elkins; Hal Foster; Michel Foucault; Michael Fried; Dan Graham; Clement Greenberg; Fredric Jameson; Mike Kelley; Mary Kelly; Melanie Klein; Joseph Kosuth; Rosalind Krauss; Julia Kristeva; Barbara Kruger; Niklas Luhmann; Jean-Francois Lyotard; Maurice Merleau-Ponty; Wjt Mitchell; Robert Morris; Linda Nochlin; Adrian Piper; Griselda Pollock; Robert Smithson; Jeff Wall; Albrecht Wellmer; and, Richard Wollheim.
