Against price within the Arts and schooling proposes that it is usually the staunchest defenders of artwork who do it the main damage, by means of suppressing or mollifying its dissenting voice, by way of neutralizing its painful truths, and through instrumentalizing its ambivalence. the result's that instead of increasing the autonomy of notion and feeling of the artist and the viewers, art’s defenders make paintings self-satisfied, or another way an echo-chamber for the constrained and proscribing self-description of people’s lives lived in an “audit culture”, a tradition pervaded via the direct and oblique excrescence of practices of responsibility.

This ebook diagnoses the counter-intuitive results of the rhetoric of price. It posits that the auditing of values pervades the cloth of people’s work-lives, their schooling, and more and more their daily adventure. The publication uncovers figures of resentment, disenchantment and alienation fostered by way of the dogma of worth. It argues as an alternative that worth judgments can behave insidiously, and include aesthetic, moral or ideological values essentially against the “value” they purportedly identify and describe. the gathering includes contributions from major students within the united kingdom and US with contributions from anthropology, the heritage of artwork, literature, schooling, musicology, political technology, and philosophy.
