"An October book."
Includes bibliographical references and index.
This volume contains a collection of essays--spanning three decades--of the writings of American art critic and theorist Rosalind E. Krauss (b. 1941). Krauss is a leading voice among modern art historians, prominent in the field of deconstructionist, feminist, and psychoanalytical art criticism. Krauss examines what she has come to call the "post-medium condition"--the abandonment by contemporary art of the modernist emphasis on the medium as the source of artistic significance. Krauss maintains that master narrative of contemporary art ended when conceptual art and other contemporary practices jettisoned the specific medium in order to juxtapose image and written text in the same work.
