Contents:
Introduction: Intimate Encounters -- Modernity, Nationalism, and Civilizing the Arts -- Art Worlds: Of Friends, Foes, and Working for the Greater Good -- Governing Culture, Producing Modern Citizens -- The Art of Forgetting -- The Politics of Art and Censorship -- Enterprising Art, Aestheticizing Business -- Instead of a Conclusion: Meeting, Again
Summary: Based on long-term ethnographic research in the art worlds of Istanbul and Berlin, The National Frame rethinks the politics of art by focusing on the role of art in state governance. It argues that artistic practices, arts patronage and sponsorship, collecting and curating art, and the modalities of censorship continue to be refracted through the conceptual lens of the nation-state, despite the globalization of the arts. By examining discussions of the civilizing function of art in Turkey and Germany and particularly moments in which art is seen to cede this function, The National Frame reveals the histories of violence on which the production, circulation, and, very understanding of art are predicated.
