In the past 200 years, 'art' has become one of the most fetishized concepts in Western civilization. The idea, according to which certain people also known as artists would provide the world with their inner visions, is a modern myth but has proved to be a contemporary reality. Today, this post-Romantic conception is challenged by recent geographical and demographic explosions. Being an artist is often seen as an activity, a position or even a 'job' contrary to its first definition
at the beginning of the 19th century. The Age of Creation analyzes the
entrance of art into culture at large. These critical writings by Proust
scholar Donatien Grau are an exciting new addition to the long-standing
and highly regarded White Pocketbook series. With forewords by Maurizio Cattelan, Douglas Coupland and Carsten Holler.
