The Anti-Aesthetic: Essays on Postmodern Culture
by Hal Foster
Publisher's Description
This anthology provides a fine background to current critical discussion, collecting nine significant essays by Jürgen Habermas, Kenneth Frampton, Rosalind Krauss, Douglas Crimp, Craig Owens, Gregory L. Ulmer, Fredric Jameson, Jean Baudrillard, and Edward W. Said. The authors discuss a wide range of facets of contemporary criticism and its relation to culture, to politics, and to the history of modernism. Joel Fineman of Art in America has described The Anti-Aesthetic as "probably the most useful, serious and rewarding anthology of its kind; it should be read by anyone concerned with the practice and theory of contemporary art."
