Conceptual art by Peter Osborne( Book )

29 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book marks a new, original and authoritative re-examination of a major turning point in late twentieth-century art. Since the mid 1960s Conceptual art - an art that consists of ideas, written down, enacted or simply carried in your head - has directly challenged the very notion that a work of art is by definition an object of visual pleasure. Conceptual art is first and foremost an art of questions. As this book demonstrates, Conceptual art continues today to raise fundamental questions not only about the definition of art itself but about politics, the media and society. Conceptual art, since its zenith from 1966 to 1972, has influenced not only all subsequent art but made a major contribution to the history of ideas. It, in turn, drew much of its inspiration from the writings of thinkers ranging from the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein to the playwright Samuel Beckett. For the first time, excerpts from these key influential writings are included alongside the major original texts by artists, critics, curators and art historians. An international movement, Conceptual art encompasses not only North America and Western Europe but also South America, Eastern Europe, Russia, China and Japan. Its legacy is global, ranging from small local participatory projects to large-scale installations at major museums and biennales

No grain, no pain : a 30-day diet for eliminating the root cause of chronic pain by Peter Osborne( Book )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the tradition of Wheat Belly and Grain Brain; No Grain, No Pain demonstrates the proven link between a gluten-heavy diet and chronic pain and discomfort--and offers a groundbreaking, 30-day, grain-free diet plan to help you heal yourself from the inside out. More than 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain according to an Institute of Medicine report released in 2011. For many, chronic pain is part of an autoimmune disease, but all too often doctors turn to the same solution: painkilling drugs. But all of this medication simply isn't helping, and as Dr. Peter Osborne, the leading authority on gluten sensitivity and food allergies has found, the real solution often lies in what you eat. In No Grain, No Pain, Dr. Osborne shows how grains wreak havoc on the body by causing tissue inflammation, creating vitamin and/or mineral deficiencies, and triggering an autoimmune response that causes the body to attack itself. But he also offers practical steps to find relief. Using his drug-free, easy-to-implement plan, you will be able to eliminate all sources of gluten and gluten-like substances, experience significant improvement in fifteen days, and eliminate pain within thirty days. No Grain, No Pain is the first book to identify diet--specifically, grain--as a leading cause of chronic suffering, and provides you with the knowledge you need to improve your health. Based on extensive research and examples culled from thousands of his satisfied patients, Dr. Osborne recommends changing your diet to achieve the relief that millions of Americans have been seeking once and for all, leading to a healthier, happier life"--
Anywhere or not at all : philosophy of contemporary art by Peter Osborne( Book )

14 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary art is the object of inflated and widely divergent claims. What kind of discourse can help us give it a critical sense? Anywhere or Not At All is a major philosophical intervention in art theory that challenges the terms of established positions through a new approach at once philosophical, historical, social and art-critical. Setting out the claim that "contemporary art is postconceptual art", the book elaborates a series of conceptual constructions and interpretations of works by Navjot Altaf, the Atlas Group, Amar Kanwar, Sol LeWitt, Gordon Matta-Clark, Gerhard Richter and Robert Smithson, among others. It concludes with new accounts of the institutional and existential complexities of "art space" and "art time". Anywhere or Not At All maps out the conceptual coordinates for an art that is both critical and contemporary in the era of global capitalism. -- Publisher description

The politics of time : modernity and avant-garde by Peter Osborne( Book )

30 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If Aristotle sought to understand time through change, might we not reverse the procedure and seek to understand change through time? Once we do this, argues Peter Osborne, it soon becomes clear that ideas such as avant-garde, modern, postmodern and tradition--which are usually only treated as markets for empirically discrete periods, movements or styles--are best understood as categories of historical totalization. More specifically, Osborne claims, such ideas involve distinct "temporalizations" of history, giving rise to conflicting politics of time
Philosophy in cultural theory by Peter Osborne( Book )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Philosophy in Cultural Theory offers a philosophical critique of cultural theory today. Peter Osborne makes critical interventions into the central philosophical debates motivating contemporary cultural analyses: interdisciplinarity and the status of pragmatism; the relationship between sign and image; the technological basis of cultural form; the theoretical importance of translation; the temporality and politics of modernism; the conceptuality of art; and the place of fantasy in human affairs. Drawing on the legacy of Walter Benjamin and the Communist Manifesto, he establishes a new transdisciplinary perspective on the experience of modernity as cultural-historical form."

Spheres of action : art and politics( Book )

13 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between art and politics has been contested throughout the modern period. In recent times, in tandem with developments in contemporary art, it has moved to the centre of debates in art and cultural theory.

For the first time, this volume brings together these thinkers from France, Italy, and Germany to offer a wide-ranging overview of the major themes in this challenging and provocative area. It will be invaluable for anyone seeking an up-to-date understanding of the topic. With an insightful introduction by the editors, the volume features contributions from some of the world's leading philosophers, theorists, and critics: Éric Alliez, Franco Berardi, Georges Didi-Huberman, Boris Groys, Maurizio Lazzarato, Elisabeth Lebovici, Antonio Negri, Jacques Rancière, Judith Revel, Peter Sloterdijk, and Peter Weibel

17 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contemporary visual art stands on the ruins of beauty. What is the place of the aesthetic in the experience of such art? And how has it changed in the two hundred years since the emergence of the modern conception of art as the object of a distinctive kind of pleasure in form? The essays in this volume, by philosophers and art theorists from Britain, France, Germany and the USA, investigate the changing role of the aesthetic in art. In writing that is both lucid and challenging, the contributors make clear that the importance a society places on art and the aesthetic is a barometer of its very health."--BOOK JACKET

Scandalous : a reader on art and ethics by Nina Möntmann( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recent encounters between art and real life, the ubiquity of images of violence and humiliation in visual culture and the media, and the persistence of controversial debates on public and participatory art projects are raising fundamental questions about the importance of ethical decisions in art and curating. How far can provocation in art go, before it becomes cynical and abusive? Does 'good censorship' exist? Are ethical decisions seen as more urgent in participatory art? This reader introduces current notions of ethics in several contexts related to the cultural field. Responding to the instrumentalization of ethics as a privileged tool of neoliberalism, the reader claims the need for an ethics that critically reflects the mechanisms of contemporary global power structures. The contributions discuss models of subjective and situational ethics and pit them against a canon of unquestioned principles and upturned notions of ethics and human rights"--Publisher's description
