Description

Wonder has an established link to the history and philosophy of science.

However, there is little acknowledgement of the relationship between the visual arts and wonder.

This book presents a new perspective on this overlooked connection, allowing a unique insight into the role of wonder in contemporary visual practice.

Artists, curators and art theorists give accounts of their approach to wonder through the use of materials, objects and ways of exhibiting.

These accounts not only raise issues of a particular relevance to the way in which we encounter our reality today but ask to what extent artists utilize the function of wonder purposely in their work.
