Product Details

Praise

“It’s a book about art history and the media, but it’s also a magic trick.” — The New Republic 

“Berger fulfils the roles of a philosopher, listener, and somewhat of a magician as he makes tantalising worlds appear, and illusions vanish.” — Pratibha Rai, Oxford Culture Review

“The influence of the series and the book . . . was enormous . . . It opened up for general attention to areas of cultural study that are now commonplace.” —Geoff Dyer

“…perhaps the most bold, clear, and widely renowned explanation of art’s entanglement with capitalism.” — The Paris Review

“Berger has the ability to cut right through the mystification of the professional art critics . . . He is a liberator of images: and once we have allowed the paintings to work on us directly, we are in a much better position to make a meaningful evaluation.” —Peter Fuller, Arts Review

“Over the past sixty years, the great John Berger — art critic, essayist, screenwriter, novelist, poet, and artist — has made immeasurable contributions to our understanding of culture and politics, never more potently than in Ways of Seeing.” –The Village Voice

On John Berger: 

“In contemporary English letters he seems to me peerless.” — Susan Sontag

“We learned from him to see that basic assumptions about everything—work, play, art, commerce—are hidden in the surrounding culture of images.” — Jane Gaines
