November 1997 | 208 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Jean Baudrillard, Art and Artefact offers a major reappraisal of Jean BaudrillardÆs thoughts on image, radical illusion, and media culture. Here for the first time, through a number of highly accessible interviews and recent essays, Baudrillard introduces what he calls the "stunning clarity" of the photographic image, and fascinatingly outlines his present thoughts on urban reality, aesthetics, virtual reality, and new media technologies, in the light of his practice as a photographer. The book is illustrated with eight color plates of BaudrillardÆs photographs and includes a number of provocative and illuminating responses to his recent writings from noted Baudrillard scholars. Jean Baudrillard, Art and Artefact also includes a definitive bibliography of critical responses to BaudrillardÆs writings on media culture, art, and photography.
