This wide-ranging and thought-provoking compilation explores the idea of nonconformity in art, religion, and philosophy. The book features 55 contemporary artists who work outside the norms of current practice, alongside both newly commissioned and previously published texts which, taken together, provide an astute sampling of recent perspectives on art and ideas.  Among the artists whose work is featured are Margit Anna, Clayton Bailey, Tony Cox, Abu Bakarr Mansaray, Birgit Megerle, Philip Smith, and Keiichi Tanaami.  The accompanying texts include classic works by Sigmund Freud and Leo Steinberg, reprinted with new commentary by Mark Edmundson and Joshua Decter, respectively; a recent essay on unorthodoxy in Judaism by Alan T. Levenson with a response by Jack Wertheimer; and a previously unpublished meditation on Aby Warburg’s art history by Georges Didi-Huberman.
