Publisher's description: Most would agree that markets and money are crude measures when it comes to establishing the value of art. What exactly is being valued in the financial approach to culture, and what is being overlooked? Giving and Taking is an ambitious project that sets out to answer these questions. In the form of ten essays by authors from a range of disciplines, the volume represents a collective effort to establish a value of art that escapes or transcends the monetary. With contributions from leading philosophers, anthropologists and sociologists such as Peter Sloterdijk, Lewis Hyde, Lars Spuybroek, Zygmunt Bauman and many others, Giving and Taking offers a rigorous intellectual inquiry into one of the art world's most pressing questions and is crucial for any artist or student of philosophy, art, sociology or economics.
