Reviews

"This ambitious book will not satisfy those seeking either an admiring output or denouncement of her importance to art history. Rather, readers will find that the author has taken her career for a sprawling battlefield and attmpts to erect a surveying tower, allowing for somer perspective over the results of the critical combat of Krauss' postmodernism ...this engaing text gives one theortist's view. In trying to explain why critics are important and have influence, the author cuts thorugh the standard assertations about the power art reviews and the tastes of a select few have on the art market. While acknowledging this economic reality, Carriers analysis of art as writing in far more grand: if criticism has influence, it is in its ability to change our ways of thinking and seeing, our conception of nature. While perceiving flaws in much of her philosophy, the author admits that this is Krauss' legacy."-tema celeste
