'The Object is this thing that refuses to go away. Virtual reality, conceptual art and numerous philosophical and psychological traditions have sought to de-thingify the world, but the object, in its many forms, persists. This anthology surveys some of the many twists and turns on the object-subject relationship, from "thingness", everyday and useful objects to lost, performative and non-objects. This wide-ranging selection of 20th- and 21st-century texts brings the object to the fore as a prism through which to re-read contemporary art and understand its recent past.' - from back cover.
