Order now: Art After the Avant-Garde: Baudrillard’s Challenge
http://intertheory.org/coulter-baudrillard-avant-garde.htm
By Gerry Coulter

Product Description
After we have read Jean Baudrillard it is difficult to see the world as we previously did. Baudrillard offered a strong challenge to art and artists, as he did everyone else. Many believe that Baudrillard was against art when he was really against the majority of things which some person or group has attempted to pass off as art. Baudrillard’s significance for art however, is that he wipes the decks clear and allows us to think anew about the art we love, and the art we do not. One of the implications of this book – a book about seeing art after taking Baudrillard seriously – is that we learn art never had a better friend, than Jean Baudrillard.

About the Author
Gerry Coulter is the founding editor of the International Journal of Baudrillard Studies, and the author of Jean Baudrillard: From the Ocean to the Desert, or the Poetics of Radicality. He has received Bishop’s University’s highest award for teaching – the William and Nancy Turner Prize.

Jean Baudrillard: From the Ocean to the Desert – The Poetics of Radicality

by Gerry Coulter 

http://intertheory.org/gerrycoulter.htm

It is in the deserts of postmodernity where Baudrillard both found and left us. It is in these deserts that we become aware, as did Baudrillard and other poststructuralist thinkers, that theory precedes the world (there is nothing that can be said of the world that is not already framed by our approach to it). It is within Coulter’s absolutely lucid exploration – and it goes without saying that the work of Jean Baudrillard should be recognized in such an appropriate revelation – that Baudrillard’s thought is unveiled.

About the Author
Gerry Coulter is the founding editor of the International Journal of Baudrillard Studies He has received Bishop’s University’s highest award for teaching – the William and Nancy Turner Prize.

AN INTRODUCTION TO RADICAL THINKERS at the ICA, 9 April – 4 June

To launch this new set, Verso is proud to present AN INTRODUCTION TO RADICAL THINKERS: a fortnightly series of events held at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), London. They are designed to take theory outside of the academy to create a public forum for the discussion of sophisticated ideas.

Led by engaging speakers to steer the potential of such debate far away from the safe confines of ‘philosophy- as-self-help’ to more provocative and radical horizons, the events aim to interrogate our existing understandings of all areas of life, including: sexuality, economics, faith, politics and the individual.

Christopher Spencer’s SPINOZA: THE APOSTLE OF REASON (1994) is the second film to be shown in the In Defense of Philosophy series. Written by Tariq Ali, the film presents the life and thought of Baruch Spinoza against the turmoil of seventeenth-century Europe. A fascinating modern man, Spinoza challenged orthodoxy in both religion andpolitics, angering his traditional contemporaries.

The film will be followed by a conversation with Tariq Ali and Peter Osborne.

Praise for RADICAL THINKERS:

“An extremely pleasant surprise: a new imprint from Verso called Radical Thinkers, and a pile of white-covered paperbacks by the likes of Theodor Adorno, Fredric Jameson, Guy Debord and Walter Benjamin. Not only do they have nifty cover designs, they are ridiculously cheap.” Nick Lezard, GUARDIAN:  http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2009/aug/15/jean-baudrillard-transparency-of-evil

“A compendium of left-wing philosophical and political thought, inoculating it against the ‘great idea’ of philosophy-as-self-help. As a way of transforming… formless disgust into educated critique, these books are a fine, cheap and decidedly elegant starting point.” —  Owen Hatherley http://www.3ammagazine.com/3am/radical-thought/

“A golden treasury of theory” — Eric Banks, BOOKFORUM

“Verso’s beautifully designed Radical Thinkers series, which brings together seminal works by leading left-wing intellectuals, is a sophisticated blend of theory and thought. The 12 authors whose writings are included in the series have worked tirelessly to expose the mechanisms by which culture and knowledge are manufactured, managed and controlled” — Ziauddin Sardar, NEW STATESMAN http://www.newstatesman.com/200604170041
