On the New looks at the economies of exchange and valuation that drive modern culture's key sites: the intellectual marketplace and the archive. As ideas move from one context to another, newness is created. This continuous shifting of the line that separates the valuable from the worthless, culture from profanity, is at the center of Boris Groys's investigation which aims to map the uncharted territory of what constitutes artistic innovation and what processes underpin its recognition and appropriation.

    In art, every modern school, from abstract art to surrealism, regarded itself as the last possible artistic approach

    In any event, most contemporary writers hold that the problematic of the new has been almost entirely overcome.1
