Art and Value and Freedom

Some of the conclusions I draw in Art and Value are echoed here in an article in Mute by two Yale PhD candidates Daniel Spaulding and Nicole Demby. I am confident they haven’t read my book or even my blog, which contains various rough drafts of some sections of the book. The agreement between us, therefore, has possibly deeper roots. Is there a new tendency to question the established conviction that art is nothing but a commodity?
