Hiding Making - Showing Creation

Hiding Making - Showing Creation

By Rachel Esner
Book Description

The aim of Hiding Making - Showing Creation is twofold.In the first instance, we seek to trace the Nachleben of these studiotopoi from the nineteenth century to today, in particular focusing onhow artists have employed them as strategies for showing certain aspectsof their practice (above all those which perpetuate the notionsof artistic genius and autonomy), while carefully hiding others fromview (routine, failure, craft).Secondly, in order to achieve these goals, we have adopted a methodthat we feel not only does justice to the richness and diversity of thetopic but which, we believe, will add a new dimension to the alreadyabundant and ever growing literature on the artist's studio.
