Against worth within the Arts and schooling proposes that it is usually the staunchest defenders of artwork who do it the main damage, by way of suppressing or mollifying its dissenting voice, by way of neutralizing its painful truths, and by means of instrumentalizing its ambivalence. the result's that instead of increasing the autonomy of concept and feeling of the artist and the viewers, art’s defenders make paintings self-satisfied, or differently an echo-chamber for the restricted and restricting self-description of people’s lives lived in an “audit culture”, a tradition pervaded through the direct and oblique excrescence of practices of responsibility.

This e-book diagnoses the counter-intuitive results of the rhetoric of price. It posits that the auditing of values pervades the material of people’s work-lives, their schooling, and more and more their daily event. The ebook uncovers figures of resentment, disenchantment and alienation fostered via the dogma of worth. It argues as a substitute that worth judgments can behave insidiously, and contain aesthetic, moral or ideological values essentially against the “value” they purportedly identify and describe. the gathering comprises contributions from major students within the united kingdom and US with contributions from anthropology, the heritage of paintings, literature, schooling, musicology, political technological know-how, and philosophy.
