THE BLIND SPOTS OF ART HISTORY: HOW WILD ART CAME TO BE – AND BE IGNORED

 

David Carrier

 

 

ABSTRACT

In their recent book Wild Art David Carrier and Joachim Pissarro make a distinction between art found in galleries and museums and what we call wild art – the many art forms which are outside of the art world. The book presents many examples of wild art. Offering an historical, philosophical perspective on that analysis this essay offers a critical political perspective on the development of wild art.
