Contemporary Sculpture and the Critique of Display Cultures: Tainted Goods
In this book, Dan Adler addresses recent tendencies in contemporary art toward assemblage sculpture and how these works incorporate tainted materials - often things left on the side of the road, according to the logic and progress of the capitalist machine - and combine them in ways that allow each element to retain a degree of empirical specificity. Adler develops a range of aesthetic models through which these practices can be understood to function critically. Each chapter focuses on a single exhibition: Isa Genzken's OIL (German Pavilion, Venice Biennale, 2007), Geoffrey Farmer's midcareer survey (Musee d'art contemporain, Montreal, 2008), Rachel Harrison's Consider the Lobster (CCS Bard Hessel Museum of Art, 2009), and Liz Magor's The Mouth and Other Storage Facilities (Henry Art Gallery, Seattle, 2008).

Art after Money, Money after Art: Creative Strategies Against Financialization
We imagine that art and money are old enemies, but this myth actually reproduces a violent system of global capitalism and prevents us from imagining and building alternatives. From the chaos unleashed by the 'imaginary' money in financial markets to the new forms of exploitation enabled by the 'creative economy' to the way art has become the plaything of the world's plutocrats, our era of financialization demands we question our romantic assumptions about art and money. By exploring the way contemporary artists engage with cash, debt and credit, Haiven identifies and assesses a range of creative strategies for mocking, sabotaging, exiting, decrypting and hacking capitalism today. Written for artists, activists and scholars, this book makes an urgent call to unleash the power of the radical imagination by any media necessary.

The Profitable Artist: A Handbook for All Artists in the Performing, Literary, and Visual Arts (Second Edition)
The Indispensable Roadmap Artists Need to Navigate Their Careers While all art is unique, the challenges artists face are shared regardless of background, experience, and artistic medium. With decades of experience training and helping artists worldwide, the expert staff of the New York Foundation for the Arts--in conjunction with outside professionals--have compiled a best practices approach to planning and organizing an art career. In The Profitable Artist, Second Edition, NYFA has identified common problems, examined specialized areas of strategic planning, finance, marketing, law, and fundraising, and distilled these topics in such a way that readers can digest them and apply them to their own experience and practice. This newly revised edition has made considerable updates to reflect changes in the legal and financial landscapes, the vast shift in the tools and culture of both social media and fundraising, and proven planning methodologies from the startup community. All of this continues to be presented in an accessible manner, which encourages artists to apply the information and techniques in a way that is true to their personal and artistic integrity. This invaluable guide appeals to artists in all disciplines of the literary, media, performing, and visual arts--from recent art school graduates to established artists undertaking new arts businesses to artists seeking more from their careers at any stage.

Talking Art: The Culture of Practice and the Practice of Culture in Mfa Education
The idea of a graduate art program likely conjures up images of young artists in lofty studios, learning advanced techniques and honing the physical practice of their creativity. In truth, however, today's MFA culture is centered almost entirely around discussing art rather than actually making it. In Talking Art, ethnographer Gary Alan Fine gives us an eye-opening look at the culture and practices of the contemporary university-based master's level art program. Central to this culture is the act of the critique, an often harrowing process-depicted here in dramatic and illuminating detail-where artists in training must defend their work before classmates and instructors. Through analysis of the practice of the critique and other aspects of the curriculum, Fine reveals how art schools have changed the very conception of the artist: no longer a misunderstood loner toiling away in a garret, now an artist is closer to being an articulate tour guide through the maze of contemporary art rhetoric. More importantly, he tells us, MFA programs have shifted the goal of creating art away from beauty and toward theory. Contemporary visual art, Fine argues, is no longer a calling or a passion-it's a discipline, with an academic culture that requires its practitioners to be verbally skilled in the presentation of their intentions. Talking Art offers a remarkable and disconcerting view into the crucial role that universities play in creating that culture.

New Art, New Markets
Originally published in 2011, Iain Robertson's A New Art from Emerging Markets introduced and examined three types of emerging markets for contemporary art: recently established, maturing and mature. This fully revised second edition updates the reader on these rapidly evolving markets and adds a vital new section on South America. As well as surveying emerging art markets throughout the world, the book is concerned with how value in non-Western contemporary art is constructed largely by external political events and economic factors rather than aesthetic considerations. For instance, Dubai's political risk has increased markedly with the threat of a terrorist attack in the Emirate, which for one of the world's newest art-market hubs, will undoubtedly affect the progress of prices for Middle-Eastern and Indian art. The book also considers whether new art markets grow better organically, driven by commercial imperatives, or with government intervention, constructing a cultural and economic infrastructure within which an art market can be placed. Written accessibly and engagingly, the book presents emerging art-market scenarios that offer the collector, investor, speculator and interested observer, an insight into where the new markets are and how they are likely to develop.

Pathology and Technology: Killer Apps and Sick Users
Pathology & Technology is the first comprehensive look at technopathologies. Since the days of the telegraph, electric communication technologies have been associated with causing or worsening mental and physical illnesses. Today, news reports warn of Pokemon Go deaths and women made vulnerable to sexual assault from wearing headphones. Drawing on an archive of hundreds of cases found across news, entertainment, and other sources over 150 years, this book investigates the intersection of technology and disease through original cultural historiography, focus groups, and discourse analysis, documenting a previously unexplored phenomenon in communication and media. Technopathologies occur with new and old media, the book argues, and are ultimately about people-not machines. They help define users as normal or abnormal, in ways that often align with existing social stereotypes. Courses on technological history, medical humanities, science and technology studies, and medical history will find much here to debate, in a style written to appeal to scholarly as well as popular readers.

Evolution: Becoming A Criminal
On a brisk winter morning in 2004, after leaving early from their final exams for the fall semester, four 19 and 20-year-old college students park an unmarked van outside of the Transylvania University Private Collections Museum. Home to a collection of some of the most valuable rare books and paintings in the world, including John James Audubon'sBirds of Americaand Charles Darwin'sOn The Origin of Species, the four young men enter the building with the intention to steal history. As one of the most audacious art heists in U.S. history unfolds, this true story explores human nature in the transition from adolescence into adulthood, and how quickly the misguided rebellion and angst of youthful struggles to find meaning and one's place in the world can devolve into criminal behavior. This stranger than fiction true story is the inspiration for the major motion pictureAmerican Animals.

An Encyclopedia of Communication Ethics: Goods in Contention
An Encyclopedia of Communication Ethics: Goods in Contention complements existing communication ethics scholarship with an examination of 103 scholars who explicitly and implicitly contributed to our understanding of this crucial subject matter. The purpose of this collection is to give an overview of key figures whose work assists our understanding of the development and influence of communication ethics. We selected voices on communication ethics after considering an individual author's contribution to the following coordinates: (1) dialectical and dialogical engagement with other scholars and perspectives; (2) the performative praxis of ethics in the interplay of theory and the public domain; and (3) examination of the connection between history and questions with a constitutive ethical theory offering a connecting response. Dialogical and dialectical engagement, performative praxis of ethics, and the intimate relationship between historical moments and ethical reflection provide a background for understanding author selection for this volume.

Hong Kong has the once-in-a-generation opportunity to assert itself as the creative and cultural hub of Asia, and to rival the established centres of New York and London. In providing an angle unique to the city, Hong Kong could play a pivotal role in redefining the concept of a 'global' art world. But, is it ready to take on the challenge? Magnus Renfrew, art expert and one of the driving forces behind the city's ascent in the art world, outlines the recent past and paints the future of Hong Kong's creative scene, all while reflecting on his own experiences and the new buzz around Hong Kong's endless possibilities.

The Orange Balloon Dog: Bubbles, Disruptions and Avarice in the Contemporary Art Market
A follow-up from Don Thompson, author of $12 Million Stuffed Shark, on the contemporary art market and human nature. Don is a lively commentator on the contemporary art market and is a world expert on what motivates collectors, dealers, galleries and museums to make the deals they make and to pay the prices they pay. Prices at the high end of the contemporary art market are driven by the intrinsic virtues of the art, but also by demand from the ultra rich, by national wealth funds, by agents, by non-taxed transactions, and by high status art fairs. The idea that the most interesting thing about contemporary art is its financial value is now accepted by many in the art world. The high end is the aspect that gets all the media attention and is where psychological factors - competition, power, betting, status, greed etc - come most obviously into play. The field of behavioural economics offers some insights and a way of explanation for the phenomena that is behind the value of art . The nuanced and exclusive world of dealers, agents and auction houses, is explored and included throughout the book, examples of which reflect the irrationalities in human behaviour and decision making. Including efforts to nudge the way individuals behave when purchasing art, the book offers insights and art-world tales from those who are making these deals, from New York and London, Luxembourg and Beijing.

Artistic Interventions in Organizations: Research, Theory and Practice
Artistic intervention, where the world of the arts is brought into organizations, has increasingly become a research field in itself with strong links to both creativity and innovation. Opportunities for the arts to interact with public and private organizations occur worldwide, but during the last decade artistic interventions have received growing attention in both practice and research. This book is the first comprehensive attempt to map the development of the field and provides an international overview of the area of artistic interventions and their impact on organizations from different perspectives, ranging from strategic management to organizational development, innovation and organizational learning. Featuring chapters from prominent and emerging scholars, including Nancy J. Adler, Barbara Czarniawska, Lotte Darso and Alexander Styhre, it places artistic interventions within an international context. The book also offers readers the opportunity to learn from experiences in a varied range of organisations, including newspapers, manufacturing, government, schools, and covers many art-forms, such as music, contemporary dance, painting, photography, and theatre. Using extensive empirical examples, this book is vital reading for researchers and scholars of creativity and cultural industries, as well as innovation, creative entrepreneurship, organizational studies and management.
