Contemporary Art and the Paradoxes of ConceptualsmBook - 2012
In this compilation of essays Camiel van Winkel uncovers the conceptual roots of contemporary art. He shows that the art of today as a whole is essentially 'post-conceptual'. The production and reception of art are determined by circumstances and factors that conceptual artists in the years 1965-75 were the first to announce: the cultural dominance of information, the professionalization of artistic practices, and the applicability of the criteria of 'good design'. This post-conceptual perspective offers a new and revealing insight into the systematics of contemporary art and artisthood.
