A reexamination of the traditionally divisive relationship between art and design

AC/DC: Contemporary Art/Contemporary Design tackles the difficult, traditionally divisive relationship between art and design. Recently, new practices and perspectives in both worlds have surfaced, putting this division under new scrutiny. An overview of the topic which will particularly appeal to students and specialists, this fully illustrated volume is one of the few anthologies to document the dialogue about the crossover between art and design taking place among experts from both fields. These experts include Paola Antonelli, Anthony Dunne, Alexandra Midal, Rick Poynor, Alice Rawsthorn, Paul Ardenne, Diedrich Diederichsen and Hal Foster. The book emerged from a symposium of the same name held in 2007 in Geneva, and is the companion volume to Wouldn't It Be Nice..., published in 2008, which addressed projects that dare to blur that once-impermeable line between art and design.
