Product Details


Chris Kraus [is] one of our smartest and most original writers on contemporary art and culture.—Holland Cotter, The New York Times “ArtsBeat”

Writer and filmmaker Chris Kraus is searingly aware of the discourse in which she functions, and transforms it into something redolent of Simone Weil’s poeticism and its daunting theoretical undercurrents.


Kraus’s text is not a collective call to arms, but an incitement to find art, to read in a heroic way, and to create a moment—as an individual or within a group—where one’s relationship to the past is dictated only by the chance nature of what the present has thrown at you.

Glasgow Review of Books

Chris Kraus’s nuanced approach is akin to a cultural anthropologist who considers creativity in its natural habitats, the spaces where art comes into being.

The Millions

InWhere Art Belongs, art theory becomes political philosophy: art matters insofar as it remains a practice, not a product. For Kraus, such practice is a means for establishing a way of life outside accepted capitalist conventions.

Aliina Astrova, Kaleidoscope

[A] super fascinating thing in this book is an essay called ‘Indelible Video’… This essay is a total milestone…’Indelible Video’ is so fascinating and consequential that it can’t be summarized here, however it is way worth the price of the book.
