Description


  • Uses an artist alter-ego interspersed throughout the text as an introspective method of analysis, which is part autobiographical, part a voice for experiences of other artists - factual self-reflection to test academic hypotheses in the real world
  • Generates criticism and opposing opinions from both academics and practitioners. A tool for research and further debate
  • Written for both scholars and students, and professional artists and those working in art and culture
