Art’s Economic Exceptionalism in Classical, Neoclassical and Marxist Economics


Dave Beech

Art and Value is the first comprehensive analysis of art's political economy throughout classical, neoclassical and Marxist economics. It provides a critical-historical survey of the theories of art's economic exceptionalism, of art as a merit good, and of the theories of art's commodification, the culture industry and real subsumption.
Key debates on the economics of art, from the high prices artworks fetch at auction, to the controversies over public subsidy of the arts, the 'cost disease' of artistic production, and neoliberal and post-Marxist theories of art's incorporation into capitalism, are examined in detail.

. It is the recognition of form that gives us the principal pleasure in mimesis, not the sensible qualities of the presentation (a fundamental point for the Poetics, as we see in the almost constant derogation of spectacle [c£ 1450b17-20] ) . Moreover, this is a pleasure that transmutes a kind of pain
