PARTICULAR CASES. Boris Groys. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 292 pp. with 60 ills. 20 x 13 cm. ISBN 9783956792212 In English.
Publisher's description: Particular Cases is not a theory about artists and artwork, but a response to art. Philosopher, art critic and media theorist Boris Groys responds to 20th-century artworks and artists that have pushed his thinking and writing in a new direction. His striking, original and lucid arguments do not look for an artwork's singular content or message but treat art as a mind-changing practice -- as if contemporary artists can inspire a sort of conversion in the soul of the spectator. Focusing on artists such as Wassily Kandinsky, David Fischli/Peter Weiss, Olga Chernysheva and Pawel Althamer, Groys writes about topics ranging from the readymade to (digital) video art and Soviet and post-Soviet artistic practices. A Global Distinguished Professor of Russian and Slavic Studies at NY U and Senior Research Fellow at the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design in Karlsruhe, Germany, Groys has authored several books including the e-flux publication Moscow Symposium (2010).
