Summary

This volume sets before English-language readers for the first time a fully elaborated theory of the 'institution of art.' The author argues that it is the social status of art, its function and prestige in society, that provides the connection between the individual art work and history. Bürger's concept of the institution of art establishes a framework within which a work of art is both produced and received.
