Review of K. Folkert’s ‘Artistic Lives’ #sssi #bookreview #sociology

In symbolic interactionism there is a long-standing concern with the arts and art worlds. Most emblematic for this concern probably is Howard Becker’s ‘Art World’ (1982). Yet, throughout its history this journal has published articles concerned with value creation in the arts (McCall 1977), the interpretation of art in conversations (Bruder and Ucok 2000), interaction in museums (vom Lehn, Heath, and Hindmarsh 2001), or most recently talk about beauty in mundane circumstance (Ruggerone and Jenkings 2015). Related topics are regularly picked up on our SSSImusic blog. Victoria Rodner’s book review “A Tale of Two Cities: Can Socioeconomic Factors Thwart Creativity in London and Berlin?” neatly links Kirsten Folkert’s book “Artistic Lives” to previous interactionist research. The book review can be accessed by clicking the image below.
