"Beauty is among the most hotly contested subjects in current discussions on art and culture. After decades of disavowal, beauty's resurgence in recent art has engaged some of the most influential artists and writers. Spanning diverse positions, this anthology assembles the key texts on the cultural politics of the recent phenomenon of beauty, as well as contextualizing these debates - both for and against - in artistic practice and the broader history of aesthetics."--Jacket.
