Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?

Linda Nochlin

£9.99 £9.29

A 50th anniversary edition of Nochlin's ground-breaking and feminist art defining 1971 essay. Also included is her "Thirty Years After" follow up, and a new 2021 introduction by Catherine Grant, Senior Lecturer in Art and Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths. Nochlin exposed the acceptance of a Western white male viewpoint in art history as both a moral and intellectual failing. There is still a long way to go, but the hope now is that this time around is so widely read that there will be no need for a future edition!

Helen Marten

£12.00 £11.16

The Boiled in Between is the debut novel by Turner Prize-winning artist Helen Marten, a bold and daring work of fiction which transposes the poetic sensibility of Martens visual work to the page. It is a challenging, playful, enigmatic, tactile and deliberately ambiguous work of great inventiveness, which will establish Marten as an exceptional talent and unique voice in contemporary fiction.

Photography and Belief

David Levi Strauss

£8.94 £8.31

A key issue for contemporary photography: seeing is not believing. Photography in the digital age of image and message manipulation leaves us uncertain we can trust our own eyes. With Deep Fake technology and the exponential success of hyper-normalisation in politics, photography has gained an inordinate power to influence public opinion, manufacture desire, and appeal to our base emotions. A book of the present moment, exploring our past and future relationship with truth.

£40.00 £37.20

Bernd and Hilla Becher: Basic Forms

£24.99 £23.24

The Becher’s unique approach to photography, essentially cataloguing building ‘types’ in a formalised style, brought an order and majesty to seemingly random and mundane structures such as cooling towers, gas tanks, mine shafts and silos. Their method and passion brought a solemn beauty to the images, to the extent that their 40-year documentary efforts can be enjoyed as exceptional conceptual art. A classic.
