Art and the challenge of markets. Volume 2. From commodification of art to artistic critiques of capitalism

Alexander, Victoria D., editor

Volumes 1 and 2 of 'Art and the Challenge of Markets' examine the politics of art and culture in light of the profound changes that have taken place in the world order since the 1980s and 1990s. The contributors explore how, in these two decades, the neoliberal or market-based model of capitalism started to spread from the economic realm to other areas of society. As a result, many aspects of contemporary Western societies increasingly function in the same way as the private enterprise sector under traditional market capitalism
