High Art Lite: British Art in the 1990s
High Art Lite takes a cool and critical look at the way in which British art in the 1990s has reinvented itself, successfully appealing both to the mass media and to the elite art world. In this extensively illustrated polemic, Julian Stallabrass asks whether it has done so at the price of dumbing down and selling out. 18 color and 53 b/w photographs.
