How should socialist artists respond to the imagery of the mass media? What social role remains for art? John Walker seeks to answer these questions through critical analyses of selected paintings, advertisements, and photomontages, and through discussions of Pop art, the mass media's use of art, the impact of mechanical reproduction, post-modernism, community art, and work based on mass culture sources. Art iti tile Age of Mass Media is not a conventional history of art but rather a contribution to artistic practice and cultural politics.
