Product Details


“Deft, opinionated … Foster is one of those rare art theorists whose measured prose can engage a wider readership, cutting through the philosophical inflationism that afflicts much of the higher gossip among art critics.”

Bad New Days attempts to recover the idea of an avant-garde after a hard half-century of infighting, obfuscation, rivalry, and successive failures to engage with the real world of politics.”
—Mark Kingwell, Harper’s

“Foster’s strength lies in his erudite attention to those artists that have emerged as definitive of their particular moment.”
—Mostafa Heddaya, Artinfo

Praise for The Art-Architecture Complex:

“I find it refreshing to encounter a degree of intellectual rigour you don’t find too often on my side of the fence.”
—Rowan Moore, Observer

The Art-Architecture Complex is a timely tome with an urgent message for anyone on the art or architecture axis.”
Time Out

The Art-Architecture Complex is a persistently insightful, elliptical account of an ambiguous symbiosis.”
—Owen Hatherley

“Elegant and incisive.”
Boston Review
