Marta Herrero. “Auctions, Rituals and Emotions in the Art Market”

2011, vol. 10, No. 1-2, pp. 79–82 [issue contents]
Marta Herrero employs the Collins’ theory of interaction rituals in her study of art auctions. By the example of the Irish sales in London the author demonstrates the influence of a pre-existing group membership on the creation of collective emotions during the performance of an auction ritual, on functioning of objects of art as material symbols representing a group and on the success of an auction as such.
