Overview

Modern Art: A Critical Introduction traces the historical and contemporary contexts for understanding modern art movements and the theories which influenced and attempted to explain them. This approach forgoes the chronological march of art movements and '-isms' in favour of looking at the ways in which art has been understood. It investigates the main developments in art interpretation from the same period, from Kant to post-structuralism, and draws examples from a wide range of art genres including painting, sculpture, photography, installation and performance art. The book includes detailed discussions of visual art practices both inside and outside the museum.
