CCS Readers: Perspectives on Art and Culture
Johanna Burton, Lynne Cooke & Josiah McElheny (Eds.)
Encounters with art engage various conditions of interiority—whether through psychic spaces or specific physical environments such as museums and private residences. The exhibition “If you lived here, you’d be home by now,” presented at the Hessel Museum of Art, CCS Bard, was the catalyst for this anthology. The first in a series titled CCS Readers, this volume provides a paradigmatic case study for probing issues of the personal and subjective experience within realms of the sociological, political and cultural. Features commissioned essays, conversations and talks, historical writings and artistic projects from such intellects as Anni Albers, Moyra Davey and Virginia Woolf to establish the notion of self, society and the contemporary art world.
