Synopsis

Two authorities on popular culture reveal the ways in which art can enhance mood and enrich lives - now available in paperback



This passionate, thought-provoking, often funny, and always-accessible book proposes a new way of looking at art, suggesting that it can be useful, relevant, and therapeutic. Through practical examples, the world-renowned authors argue that certain great works of art have clues as to how to manage the tensions and confusions of modern life. Chapters on love, nature, money, and politics show how art can help with many common difficulties, from forging good relationships to coming to terms with mortality.

He is the author of several well-received books, including The Intimate Philosophy of Art, and Conditions of Love.

This is the manifesto that has controversially divided the art world, asking us to cast aside all preconceptions on how art should be consumer and instead think about how it can be used as a tool for self improvement and to better understand our daily existence. You may not agree with the ideas posited (including a plan to reorganise galleries on levels that recall Dante’s Divine Comedy somewhat); nonetheless this offers fresh insights into how we can connect with what we see before us.
