Pictorial Nominalism by Thierry de Duve

Book Description

Reveals the invention of the readymade as a critical point in contemporary art. Beginning with the instance in 1912 when Marcel Duchamp wrote in a note to himself, "No more painting, get a job," Thierry de Duve reviews in "Pictorial Nominalism" the implications of the readymade for art and representation. Arguing that the readymade belongs to that moment in the history of painting when both figuration and the practice of painting become "impossible," de Duve presents a psychoanalytically informed account of the birth of abstraction. Differing considerably from such thinkers as Clement Greenberg and Peter Burger, de Duve demonstrates that the readymade is the link between painting in particular and art at large.

Sewn in the Sweatshops of Marx by Thierry de Duve Sewn in the Sweatshops of Marx, Paperback (October 2012)

"Joseph Beuys", "Andy Warhol", "Yves Klein", and "Marcel Duchamp" form an unlikely quartet, but they each played a singular role in shaping a avant-garde for the 1960s and beyond. The author binds these artists through another connection: the mapping of the aesthetic field onto political economy.

Clement Greenberg Between the Lines by Thierry de Duve Clement Greenberg Between the Lines, Paperback (April 2010)

This title assesses Greenberg's writings, and features the approaches to the man and his work.
