Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Deleuze on Art: The Problem of Aesthetic Constructions by Michael Jasper.

This book examines the role of art in French philosopher Gilles Deleuze’s (1925–1995) late writings. Can works of art produce not only visual and spatial effects but also render ideas manifest? Can movement be treated in architecture so that it changes our relation to time? In what ways can sculpture help us to think differently, in a more open and creative way? In the last decade of his life, Deleuze wrote about these and other questions, increasingly turning to art as a model for a new way of thinking. Using examples from twentieth-century architecture, film, literature, painting and sculpture, this book follows Deleuze’s engagement with art to illustrate a new image of thought. This book is of interest to architects, artists and theorists and to those wishing to learn about Deleuze’s work and contemporary aesthetic practice and theory.
