Translated by Warren Niesluchowsk
With a conversation between Johanna Burton, Warren Niesluchowsk and Bettina Funcke
In dialogue with some of the most interesting modern and contemporary philosophical figures, Bettina Funcke traces the divisions and alternations in twentieth-century art between high and low engagements with popular forms. She reveals fascinatingly how twentieth-century artists not only seek to engage the people but also problematize "the people" as a political and cultural construct.
