Overview

"Standing at the intersection of media studies, architectural criticism, and art history, David Joselit's After Art confronts the question of contemporary art in an age of proliferating networks. Joselit tracks the literal and epistemic 'states of form' of recent visual culture and offers a powerful new model for thinking about art's circulation and currency."—Pamela M. Lee, Stanford University

"David Joselit's concisely argued After Art might well have been entitled After Aura as he elegantly replies to Walter Benjamin's sense of art's loss of power with the introduction of technological reproduction. Instead, Joselit makes a persuasive case for the reinvigoration of the power of the image in contemporary artistic and architectural production as a result of the distributive capacity of communication networks."—Anthony Vidler, The Cooper Union

"Pertinent and intelligent, After Art will be of great interest to art historians and readers of contemporary art and media theory."—Sylvia Lavin, author of Kissing Architecture
