Forms of Enchantment

Dundee Contemporary Arts



Delve into the magic of art with Marina Warner's Forms of Enchantment: Writing on Art & Artists.

Marina Warner compellingly explores the layers of allusion, symbols and stories underlying art from the 16th to the 21st centuries. In making the case for a uniquely writerly way of thinking with and about art and artists, she sets out to share the dynamism, fluidity and passions of the objects of her enquiry.

Approaching art and artists primarily through the fields of anthropology, mythology and fairy tale, Warner argues for art’s place in society as a site of enchantment: a realm in which imagination holds the key to knowledge and understanding.
