Are your students baffled by Baudrillard?
Dazed by Deleuze? Confused by Kristeva?
Other beginners’ guides can feel as impenetrable as the original texts to students who "think in images". Contemporary Thinkers Reframed instead uses the language of the arts to explore the usefulness in practice of complex ideas.
Short, contemporary and accessible, these lively books utilise actual examples of artworks, films, television shows, works of architecture, fashion, and even computer games to explain and explore the work of the most commonly taught thinkers. Conceived specifically for the visually minded, the series will prove invaluable to practitioners an students right across the visual arts.
