Editorial Reviews

Review

Tanke provides a strikingly clear and well-informed analysis of Foucault's genealogy of modernity. This book offers perspicuous readings of many of Foucault's major texts from the standpoint of visual art and its history. From diverse sources Tanke constructs a powerful theoretical model that should be valuable for those with interests in art history, visual culture, and recent European philosophy. —Gary Shapiro, author of Archaeologies of Vision:Foucault and Nietzsche on Seeing and Saying (University of Chicago Press, 2003)

Ideal for both undergraduates seeking a reliable overview and for scholars interested in the positioning of artworks in modernity, this book's strengths are its clarity of composition, its author's critical detachment, and the fascinating use to which he puts Foucault's quite recently published lectures about artworks and artists. (French Studies)

Ideal for both undergraduates seeking a reliable overview and for scholars interested in the positioning of artworks in modernity, this book's strengths are its clarity of composition, its author's critical detachment, and the fascinating use to which he puts Foucault's quite recently  published lectures about artworks and artists. (Sanford Lakoff)
