“It was especially interesting for us to watch a kind of transatlantic divide happening. While the US-American participants mostly declared criticism as obsolete while hoping for turning its weakness into a strength, most European participants departed from the opposite diagnosis: that criticism has never been as strong as it is today, since it is now part of a knowledge-based economy.” —Isabelle Graw & Daniel Birnbaum

Canvases and Careers Today brings together contributions from the eponymous conference organized by the Institut für Kunstkritik, Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main. Its goal is to provide deeper insights and more complexity to current debates on the relationship between criticism, art, and the market.
