Abstract (English)

Guest editor Cummings explores issues surrounding art, the commodity, and "procedures of use." Joselit differentiates between Johns' and Duchamp's approach to the readymade. D. Miller examines the use of kitchens in a London district, treating issues of value, race, and gender. Cussans explores text and subjectivity, while Dibosa discusses the use of metonymy and the construction of social identity.
