Product Details

Product Description


Bruno's command of theory helps her unravel what is meaningful in kinds of art that have become pervasive: rambling installation and artwork that takes on architecture. Her writing is distinguished from that of, for instance, ohn Rajchman or Anthony Vidler by her signature personal texture and inventive wordplay.

(Yasmeen M. Siddiqui Modern Painters)

As this lucid and important new book makes clear, Giuliana Bruno is one of the very few cultural theorists with the intellectual originality and breadth of knowledge to evaluate meaningfully the ongoing reconfiguration of relations between architecture, cinema, and the visual arts.

(Jonathan Crary, Meyer Shapiro Professor of Moden Art and Theory, Columbia University)
