Abstract

In Anthropology of the Arts, editors Gretchen Bakke and Marina Peterson offer a new overview of significant anthropological engagement with artistic practices ranging from painting to sound and film, presenting canonical writings by theorists including Mary Douglas, Pierre Bourdieu and Marcel Maus. Sander Hölsgens praises the curatorial decisions that enable the book to gesture towards a diversity of anthropological writing styles and ethnographic practices, and welcomes the collection as a valuable addition to any curriculum looking to explore the relationship between anthropology and the arts.
