Seven Days in the Art World

Seven Days in the Art WorldSociologist Sarah Thornton was a student and lover of art.   Her PhD on dance clubs and raves was published in a book form under the title, Club Cultures: Music, Media and Subcultural Capital.  Over ten years later Thornton has published a new work, Seven Days in the Art World, a behind the scenes artistic expedition in seven days, six cities, and five countries.  From The Auction in New York City to The Fair in Switzerland, The Prize in London to The Studio in Japan, Thornton depicts the ethnography and mindset of the contemporary art world.  A belief that nothing is more important than art itself brings all subcultures of the current and hip art macrocosm together.
