This book offers a unique perspective of art and its education in designer capitalism. It will contribute to the debate as to possibilities art and design hold for the future. It also questions the broad technologization of art that is taking place.

Editorial Reviews

"A novel and persuasive analysis. Bringing together a range of theoretical positions with discussions of visual arts and culture, this book juxtaposes art and design in order to argue the importance of the idea of 'avant-garde without authority' in contemporary art education. Brilliant discussions of art - from post-Situationism to Viola, Jaar, and Wodiczko - highlight the ways in which such avant-garde without authority expands freedom and nonpower by 'ruining representation.''' - Krzysztof Ziarek, Professor of Comparative Literature and Director of Graduate Studies, University at Buffalo, SUNY"This book is an important intervention and exploration of art and its education in our current socio-cultural, political, and economic contexts. It is an insightful and valuable resource for students, teachers, and researchers in the field. jagodzinski draws extensively upon an impressive breadth and depth of theory and art practice in order to make and consolidate his thesis concerning art and education in an era of designer capitalism." - Dennis Atkinson, Director of the Research Center for the Arts and Learning, Goldsmiths, University of London
