DONATIEN GRAU: THE AGE OF CREATION. Lukas & Sternberg, Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2013. Lukas & Sternberg, 22. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 130 pp. 17 x 11 cm. ISBN 9783943365337 In English.
Publisher's description: In the past 200 years, "art" has become one of the most fetishized concepts in Western civilization. The idea, according to which certain people -- also known as artists -- would provide the world with their inner visions, is a modern myth but has proved to be a contemporary reality. Today, this post-Romantic conception is challenged by recent geographical and demographic explosions. Being an artist is often seen as an activity, a position or even a "job" -- contrary to its first definition at the beginning of the 19th century. The Age of Creation analyzes the entrance of art into culture at large. These critical writings by Proust scholar Donatien Grau are an exciting new addition to the long-standing and highly regarded White Pocketbook series. With forewords by Maurizio Cattelan, Douglas Coupland and Carsten Holler.
