Product Description

Positioning the Art Gallery explores the world of the galleries of Amsterdam and their place in a broader, international context. The book covers the history of the galleries in Amsterdam from around 1960 to the present and widens its focus to include the functioning of the gallery as an institution: What does a gallery mean in terms of substantive, economic, social and (art) historical aspects for the artist, art and the public? How does the gallery relate to other platforms for contemporary art?
