About the Author

Natasha Degen is a professor at Sotheby's Institute of Art, New York and a contributor to publications including Artforum, frieze, and The Financial Times.


"An excellent, essential anthology, which is both a good read and a useful teaching tool." - Sarah Thornton, author of 'Seven Days in the Art World'. "An invaluable resource which not only analyses and unpicks the origins and evolution of today's all-pervasive art market behemoth, but also offers an array of perspectives on its highly vexed relationship to notions of value and its impact on artistic practice. Mandatory - if somewhat disquieting - reading for all sectors of the art world and especially artists!" - Louisa Buck, Contemporary art correspondent, 'The Art Newspaper'.
