Art in Time: a new book from Phaidon

Phaidon’s upcoming release, Art in Time, represents artists and their work in relation to the times that inspired them—around the world and across the centuries. Not an easy task by any means. 

The book begins with the most recent artistic developments of the 21st century and works backwards in time through some of art’s most interesting periods. It orientates these alongside historical events, providing social and political contexts for each movement.

"Middle is the time of intervention and prosperity. It marks the middle of life, when energies and visions are abundant. As we struggle to attain some ill-defined summit, hidden behind the clouds, days go by in a hectic and often uncontrollable congestion that accompanies the construction of a self-image incorporating family, career, home improvements and self-reproduction. This era, sparked by the conception of my oldest son, ended sharply when my mother passed away in 2010. At that time Bogi was again carrying our child."
