“In this stunningly original book, an introduction to contemporary art is combined with the author’s own memories and reflections on what art means. With the help of a cast of interfering security guards, sceptical visitors, angry protestors and disruptive ghosts, Eastham proposes that the often bewildering art of today offers a way of engaging with our strange and complex times.”
