Facing Value: Radical Perspectives from the Arts by Maaike Lauwaert
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The book investigates value in non-economic terms through series of essays and interviews on uncertainty, conceptual art, time, alternative social modules, human experience, experimental architecture, etc. It may seem a bit random at first, but the idea of tackling different ways to reformulate value is the whole point of this anthology. A good read for those just starting to investigate the issue, as long bibliographies after each essay hint towards further research on a particular subject.
