"Hold It Against Me is forceful and memorable. Jennifer Doyle thinks about difficult art in a way that refreshes its historical impact; she also revitalizes what criticism can do to extend the event that its objects have been to new ethical, political, and aesthetic domains." - Lauren Berlant, author of Cruel Optimism "In Hold It Against Me, Jennifer Doyle brilliantly interrogates a key aspect of contemporary visual culture: the issue of feeling itself. While art discourse has studiously avoided addressing how we feel, Doyle fearlessly attacks the question head on, exploring her own responses as she charts the resistance to emotion across art criticism and curation. Through this moving, lacerating critique, she provides an entirely new way of thinking about how art can, if we let it, potentially hurt, touch, and transform us." - Amelia Jones, author of Self/Image: Technology, Representation, and the Contemporary Subject "Focusing on performance art and interdisciplinary genres, including artists such as Ron Athey, Aliza Shvarts, Carrie Mae Weems and David Wojnarowicz, Doyle offers an alternative narrative of their controversial works as 'difficult' - invoking profound and often maligned, sensibilities of empathy, love and anger, rooted in the form of the confessional and personal: emotion is, according to Doyle, that which arrives alongside the expressive act. A cri du coeur of sorts, not only against the institutional practices of normative curatorship following the 'Culture Wars' of the 1990s, but also upon the phlegmatic 'cool' of October-inspired critique, Hold It Against Me seeks to return art spectatorship to the body's sensorium - with all of its messy complicities."-Erik Morse, Frieze Magazine "In this rich, thought-provoking, and very readable work of scholarship, Doyle poses questions about works of art that cannot be easily described, that bring complicated personal and political subject matter to the fore, and that often evoke strong emotional reactions in the audiences that view them. She discusses a selection of art work, most often performance, by artists such as Ron Athey, Aliza Shvarts,James Luna, Carrie Mae Weems, and David Wojnarowicz, among others."-Hyperallergic

Very interesting account of difficult art 26. Juni 2013
Von sm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a very engagingly written book. The topic of difficulty in contemporary art is a really important topic to address and hopefully this will open up this topic for further discussion. The main focus is difficult American performance art (with particular attention to queer art) and how it is treated in art criticism or rather how it hasn't been treated. Emotion is only touched on, the main issue is tackling difficulty.

"Why IS this art so difficult?" 24. Juni 2014
Von rdf - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
And why is it more difficult than other work with which it has lot in common?

An engaging, descriptive examination of the question by someone who's spent a lot of time thinking about it.

This book has a lot of insight and is written in a pretty down to earth style for an academic book.
