WHEN ART MEETS MONEY: ENCOUNTERS AT THE ART BASEL. Franz Schultheis et al. Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther Konig, Cologne, n.d. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York, 2016. Kunstwissenschaftliche Bibliothek, 44. 258 pp. with 58 ills. (53 col.). 25 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783863357443 In English.
Publisher's description: Art Basel is more than just a fair in the commercial sense of the word, more than a concentrated gathering of dealers offering their goods for sale to interested buyers. It is the site of display of holy goods in the presence of thousands and thousands of believers, a mecca for the ritualized adoration of modern and contemporary art. It is also the decisive witness of the upheaval marking a radical change in the relationship between art and money, with all of the consequences -- not least, the evaluation of what is to be regarded as "genuine" art. When Art Meets Money offers a sociological study in the vein of Pierre Bourdieu, the result of several years of field work, attempting to draw a picture of this change as perceived by the participants, fair organizers, gallerists, collectors, curators, art consultants and artists as a central problem of the contemporary art scene.
