Abstract (English)

"Published to accompany a group exhibition at Tate Modern bringing together five celebrated contemporary artists from Latin America and Europe, Common Wealth explores the meanings, implications and politics of the words 'common' and 'wealth'. How is wealth manifested in art beyond the simple fact of the work's status as commodity, and what type of exchange must take place for another type of currency to emerge? Illustrated in colour throughout, Common Wealth contains essays by Jessica Morgan, Tate Curator, and Richard Sennett, Professor of Sociology at the London School of Economics; an interview with Jean-Luc Nancy, Professort of Philosophy at the University of Strasbourg; as well as interviews with the five featured artists.''-- p.[4] of cover.
