Description - Neo-Avantgarde and Culture Industry by Benjamin H. D. Buchloh
Each of the 18 essays in this collection looks at a different artist within the framework of specific theoretical and historical questions. The art movements covered include Nouveau Realisme in France, art in postwar Germany, American Fluxus and pop art, minimalism and postminimal art, and European and American conceptual art. Benjamin Buchloh addresses some artists in terms of their oppositional approaches to language and painting, for example, Nancy Spero and Lawrence Weiner. About others, he asks more general questions concerning the development of models of institutional critique (Hans Haacke) and the theorization of the museum (Marcel Broodthaers); or he addresses the formation of the historical memory in postconceptual art (James Coleman).
