After Modern Art

Author: David Hopkins

Release Date: 2018-06-21
Genre: Art

Contemporary art can be baffling and beautiful, provocative and disturbing. This pioneering book presents a new look at the controversial period between 1945 and 2015, when art and its traditional forms were called into question. It focuses on the relationship between American and European art, and challenges previously held views about the origins of some of the most innovative ideas in art of this time. Major artists such as Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Joseph Beuys, Gerhard Richter, Louise Bourgeois, Cindy Sherman, Jeff Koons, and Shiran Neshat are all discussed, as is the art world of the last fifty years. Important trends are also covered including Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, Minimalism, Conceptualism, Postmodernism, and Performance Art. This revised and updated second edition includes a new chapter exploring art since 2000 and how globalization has caused shifts in the art world, an updated Bibliography, and 16 new, colour illustrations.

Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, George Grosz, Emil Nolde, E.-L. Kirchner, Paul Klee, Franz Marc sowie die Österreicher Oskar Kokoschka und Egon Schiele gehörten der Generation der höchst individuellen Künstler an, die zu der impulsiven und oft auch kontroversen neuen Bewegung des Expressionismus in Deutschland und Österreich des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts beitrugen. Diese Publikation stellt ihre Arbeit vor und verbindet sie mit dem kulturellen Kontext und weiteren Bewegungen jener Zeit. Die Autorin, die Kunsthistorikerin Ashley Bassie, erklärt, wie die expressionistische Kunst den Weg zu einer neuen, intensiven, bewegenden Betrachtung psychologischer, emotionaler und sozialer Themen des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts bereitete. Dieses Buch untersucht die Entwicklung des Expressionismus und seine Hauptwerke und hebt die oft intensiven subjektiven Bilder, ihr Streben sowie die Konflikte hervor, aus denen der Expressionismus hervorging.
