Publication Date 1999
Description This work re-examines the course of 20th-century art through the oeuvres and theoretical positions of 25 major sculptors. From his insight into the mysteries of Marcel Duchamp to the deconstructivism of the 1960s, to the spiritualism and conceptualism in the 1980s and 1990s, the author explains how the shift from modernism to postmodernism in 20th-century art created a new age, one in which doubt reigned supreme, becoming a powerful undercurrent and defining force in the scuplture of the last generation. Framed in a discussion of the history and intellectual issues surrounding the postmodern movement, the essays in this book uncover how these sculptors have grappled with postmodern doubt, how they adopted it into their work, and succeeded in liberating art forever.
