Sublime economy : on the intersection of art and economics

"The premise of this collection is that despite this perceptual sharing, "sublime economy" has yet to be investigated in a purely cross-disciplinary way. Sublime Economy seeks to map this critical territory by exploring the ways diverse concepts of economy and economic value have been culturally constituted and disseminated through modern art and cultural practice." "Comprising of 14 individual essays along with an editors' introduction, Sublime Economy draws together work from some of the leading scholars in the several fields currently exploring the intersection of economic and aesthetic practices and discourses." "This book looks at how cultural critics and theorists have put forward working notions of economic value that have regularities and effects similar to those of the "expert" conceptions and discourses about value that have been the preserve of professional economists." "This book will be of great interest to students and researchers engaged with economics of art and culture, aesthetic criticism, cultural studies, as well as those with an interest in art, entrepreneurship, and marketing."--Jacket
