“Mira Schor reminds us that some of the best, and most eye-opening, writing on art has always been made by artists themselves. The essays in A Decade of Negative Thinking demolish countless widely held assumptions about contemporary art, and do so with a compelling blend of skepticism and passion.”—Raphael Rubinstein, author of Polychrome Profusion: Selected Art Criticism, 1990–2002
“This collection of essays by one of the most engaging writers of contemporary art critically excavates and redefines the enduring questions in aesthetics and politics with extraordinary verve and urgency.”—Gunalan Nadarajan, Vice Provost for Research, Maryland Institute College of Art
