‘Insights from the zeitgeist are preserved with conviction and clarity, offering an inclusive way to access contemporary art in all its forms. If Talk Art is the fun podcast, then this book is the educational supplement to be prescribed alongside it.’ Aesthetica

‘Where the collection really takes off is the interviews with younger artists, which are sensitive,
unpatronising, genuinely questioning and fundamentally challenging….Indeed, this collection’s strength ultimately lies in the fact that it reveals nothing more than a battlefield in its quest to establish what contemporary art is all about.’ –
ArtReview
