ReNew Marxist Art History

Issue section:

Author: 

This volume of essays was initially conceived as a collection of contributions and articles (or "Festschrift" to give such a work its proper name) in honour of the Marxist professor, writer and historian Andrew Hemingway to mark his retirement from the Department of History of Art at University College London.

But the editors developed a second objective, that is to provide a snapshot of the current state of "an art history that can be considered Marxist".
The book provides a lucid and important statement about where and how the discipline stands today.
