Power Polemics: A flagship series of books and public lectures

Arguments cut against the grain. Sides are taken. Thomas Crow challenges us to acknowledge the theology of abstract art and Barbara Creed advocates for the figure of the stray, both human and animal. Our flagship series puts art hard up against political and personal viewpoints from the field’s leading writers.

“Power Polemics are big ideas that fit in your pocket. They present sharp, accessible, engaging essays on art and culture by renowned international thinkers who share our commitment to the vital and continuing relevance of art in the world.” Mark Ledbury, Director, Power Institute
