Rethinking the Baroque

Scholars from a range of disciplines retrieve the term 'baroque' from the margins of art history where it has been sidelines as 'anachronistic', to reconsider the usefulness of the term 'baroque', while avoiding simply rehearsing familiar policing of periodization, stylistic boundaries, categories or essence. 'Baroque' emerges as a vital and productive way to rethink problems in art history, visual culture and architectural theory
