Enrichment

A Critique of Commodities

«“Boltanski and Esquerre propose a grammar of things and their value that sheds new light on the transformations of contemporary capitalism. An original and powerful work which will undoubtedly stimulate much debate.”
Clément Lefranc, Sciences humaines

“A seminal book.”
European Journal of Sociology

“arresting and impressive”
Journal of Classical Sociology


"Expansion of industry blocked, capitalism in France—and not only there—seeks shelter in the production by select artisans and artists of 'authentic' goods for the winners of globalization. Enrichment is a brilliant and deeply disturbing study of this grim involution, by which a nation’s history and identity become its last resource, and new forms of labor market inclusion and exclusion disarm traditional criticism of exploitation. This book is a foundation stone in a sociology of dystopia for our times."
Charles Sabel, Columbia Law School

“Uplifting, fun, accessible to all, Enrichment is the most scholarly and relevant analysis to finally make sense of the current 'madness' of the art market. It fascinates speculators, disconcerts art lovers, and arouses public distrust. But the observation is obvious to all: in our post-industrial societies, heritage, luxury goods and even contemporary art are the only source of wealth that we have. They are now part of the main foundations of our economy."
Catherine Millet, founder and editor of Art Press
