Art has its own power in the world, and is as much a force in the power play of global politics today as it once was in the arena of cold war politics. Art, argues distinguished theoretician Boris Groys, is hardly a powerless commodity subject to the art market's fiats of inclusion and exclusion. In Art Power, Groys examines modern and contemporary art according to its ideological function. Art, Groys writes, is produced and brought before the public in two ways - as a commodity and as a tool of political propaganda.


Boris Groys wurde 1947 in Ostberlin geboren und ist aufgewachsen in der UdSSR, wo er an verschiedenen wissenschaftlichen Instituten in Leningrad und Moskau arbeitete. Seit 1981 ist er in Deutschland und seit 1994 Professor für Kunstwissenschaft, Philosophie und Medientheorie an der Hochschule für Gestaltung in Karlsruhe.


"By probing unacknowledged, repressed, or otherwise unexamined relationships that hover in the background of art-world conversation, Art Power recombines categories, reconfigures assumptions, and, in the end, reimagines what art writing can be." Matthew Jesse Jackson Bookforum "It's a seemingly unlimited supply of surprising, even audacious truths that many invested in the art world might prefer not to think too hard about." Canadian Art "The range of topics canvassed in Art Power is impressive... All of these subjects have been comprehensively treated elsewhere, but rarely with Groys' penetrating eye for the unexpected upshot of such developments." Frieze
