Overview

Vision and Society: Towards a Sociology and Anthropology from Art by John Clammer

Vision and Society is an attempt to show that it is possible to go beyond a sociology of art to the more ambitious possibility of a sociology from
art. This book develops a theory of the relationship of the visual and the social and illustrates these with comparative examples from around the world.
