Contemporary Art and Anthropology takes a new and exciting approach to
representational practices within contemporary art and anthropology.
Traditionally the anthropology of art has tended to focus on the
interpretation of tribal artefacts, but has not considered the impact such
art could have on its own ways of making and presenting work.

The contributors to this pioneering book consider the work of artists such
as Susan Hiller, Francesco Clemente and Rimer Cardillo, and in exploring
topics such as the possibility of shared representational values,
aesthetics and modernity, and tattooing, they suggest productive new
directions for practices in both fields.

'There is an anthropology of art and art-making, just as there is an
anthropology that is art, butting at the crabby distinctions separating art
from science. This book raises the wonderful specter of having the two
combine forces to the benefit of both art and anthropology. A treat!'

        Michael Taussig, Professor of Anthropology, Columbia University,
New York

Arnd Schneider is Reader in Anthropology at the University of East London,
England & Senior Research Fellow (Habilitationsstipendiat, DFG) at the
University of Hamburg, Germany.

Christopher Wright is Lecturer in Anthropology at Goldsmiths College,
