Overview

On the Museum's Ruins presents Douglas Crimp's criticism of contemporary art, its institutions, and its politics alongside photographic works by the artist Louise Lawler to create a collaborative project that is itself an example of postmodern practice at its most provocative. Crimp elaborates the new paradigm of postmodernism through analyses of art practices broadly conceived, not only the practices of artists -- Robert Rauschenberg, Cindy
Sherman, Marcel Broodthaers, Richard Serra, Sherrie Levine, and Robert Mapplethorpe
-- but those of critics and curators, of international exhibitions, and of new or refurbished museums such as the Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart and the
Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin.
