The Dysfunction of Criticism

The Dysfunction of Criticism
Publication Date
Abstract According to JJ Charlesworth it is not art but criticism that is in crisis. Introducing his 1986 essay 'The End of Art Theory' Victor Burgin relates the experience, a decade earlier, of participating in a debate hosted by the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London which, he was told, 'was to be a response to the crisis in British Art'. He continues, with mock-naivety, 'I never did learn what the ''crisis in British Art'' was; nor, I suspect, did anyone else.
