After the Great Refusal - Essays on Contemporary Art, Its Contradictions and Difficulties by Mikkel Bolt Rasmussen

A Western Marxist reading of contemporary art, focusing on the question of the continued presence (or absence) of the avant-garde's transgressive impulse. Taking art's ability to contribute to radical social transformation as its point of departure, Mikkel Bolt Rasmussen's new title from Zero Books analyses the relationship between the current neoliberal hegemony and contemporary art, including relational aesthetics and interventionist art, new institutionalism and post-modern architecture. '...a trenchant critique of neoliberal domination of contemporary art.' Gene Ray, author of Terror and the Sublime in Art and Critical Theory
