Art, Society and Self-consciousness
5.5 ins. x 8.5 ins.
A three-part work covering Theory, History and Practice by the advocate of a "Contextual Art" relevant to all aspects of our lives.
"The reason for writing this book is the great anxiety that I feel living in modern civilization - a civilization in which, with ever-increasing difficulty, I am able to identify reality and define its values... I was interested, as a matter of fact, not in describing things (this being the domain of science), but in putting forward proposals for constructing images of the world and the system of values functioning within them - this being the domain of art." - Jan Swidzinski, from the introduction.
