Art has changed. Familiar styles and movements that characterized art production prior to the twenty-first century have all vanished. Traditional artistic media no longer do what we expect of them.

Ways of Looking provides a six-step programme for understanding contemporary art based on the concept of the tabula rasa — a clean slate and a fresh mind. It transforms a potentially intimidating encounter with cutting-edge art into a dramatic, sensually rewarding and thought-provoking experience.
