Formless: A User’s Guide
Sep 26, Saranna added it Shelves: Jan 17, Lauren Klotz rated it it was amazing. Nov 22, Barry Pierce rated it liked it Shelves: Used this book a lot in my history of art dissertation, which was based around Bataille’s theory of the formless but I applied it to Young British Art. You really cannot get any better than Bois and Krauss on this rosalindd, even if at some points of this book you wonder whether even they fully understand what Bataille was talking formlses.
Feb 07, Michael Braithwaite rated it it was ok Recommends it for: The conceited and the brave. It’s hard enough to understand l’art informel when fucking Bataille krauzs about it, but it’s even more difficult to get it here.
I’m not convinced that Bois himself understands what the formless is. It’s definition is everything thing that it krajss NOT, to the point that the formless seems to in fact be nothing other than a vague impression of the potentiality for some sort of subversion or declassification Jul 15, Garek Druss added it.
