About the Book
This is a book about artists and the work they do. Art criticism has a reputation of being the most self-consciously elitist literature around. Also, a fair amount of it is quite boring. And then, for many, there is the added problem that a lot of what passes for art is not very interesting to look at, let alone read about.
This book aims to change that. It is about art, history and above all, about people. The art to be found here is varied and compelling. You will discover paintings, photographs, collages, digital composites, and sculptures from all over the world being made by fascinating people with unique stories to tell. You will also read about how all this ties into the ebb and flow of art history and the surprising ways in which this matters. Raddatz’ journey into the hearts and minds of these artists is an exciting combination of clear language and scholarly research that is often humorous and refreshingly blunt.
