THE PERMANENCE OF THE TRANSIENT: PRECARIOUSNESS IN ART. Ed. by Camila Maroja et al. Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Newcastle upon Tyne, 2014. 200 pp. with 64 ills. (24 col.). 21 x 15 cm. ISBN 9781443856980 In English.
Publisher's description: How should one approach the notion of the precarious in art--its meanings and its outcomes? Its presence in artistic practices may be transient, yet it instigates permanent changes in the production, discourse, and perception of art. The Permanence of the Transient: Precariousness in Art gathers essays that examine the traces and implications of precariousness in contemporary art, and lays a foundation for a thoughtful study of its emergence in related fields throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. The different perspectives represented in this volume touch on art history and theory, curatorial practice, media art, philosophy, language, and transnational studies, and highlight artists' narratives. Together, these interdisciplinary essays locate precariousness as an undercurrent in contemporary art and a connective tissue across diverse areas of knowledge and everyday life.
