Editorial Reviews

Chicago Artists News
It can be read in several hours. It can be studied for several more. And it can be thought about for days on end. Overall, The Dialectic of Decadence shines a bright light on the fragmented state of art. Kuspit is especially passionate and learned in lamenting how artists and critics use "decadence" to widen the divisions in art, which should be a harmony of heart and mind.
