"Joselit, a Yale professor and critic whose previous writings have assiduously observed the intersection of art and tech, lays his argument out with pedagogic steadiness."--Art Review
"[After Art] is insightful and offers countless examples of the cultural and political forces influencing creative arts. . . . [W]ell-referenced and clearly written."--Choice
"Joselit points out a stimulating journey through recent art and architecture where his discourse functions as a sort of guide, complete with images and diagrams, within the illuminating text."--Kieran Lyons, Leonardo Reviews
From the Back Cover
"Standing at the intersection of media studies, architectural criticism, and art history, David Joselit's After Art confronts the question of contemporary art in an age of proliferating networks. Joselit tracks the literal and epistemic 'states of form' of recent visual culture and offers a powerful new model for thinking about art's circulation and currency."--Pamela M. Lee, Stanford University
"David Joselit's concisely argued After Art might well have been entitled After Aura as he elegantly replies to Walter Benjamin's sense of art's loss of power with the introduction of technological reproduction. Instead, Joselit makes a persuasive case for the reinvigoration of the power of the image in contemporary artistic and architectural production as a result of the distributive capacity of communication networks."--Anthony Vidler, The Cooper Union
"Pertinent and intelligent, After Art will be of great interest to art historians and readers of contemporary art and media theory."--Sylvia Lavin, author of Kissing Architecture

Im glad I read this book, as it gave me the perspective grad school didnt gave me on the nature of art in a globalized, networked enviroment. It addressed many of my prejudices about non-material art, strenghtening my conceptual position and... although this is not the objective of the book, it inspired me on reinventing myself as an artist.

I am not sure who and why anyone are gaining from reading this book since the book communicates nothing.Published 16 months ago by C. AN
This is a handsomely designed book, complete with logos to go along with some of the concepts. Unfortunately, the concepts are a little light, and ultimately affirm the status quo.Published 17 months ago by dolce umbra
