9783865216434: Eclipse: Art in a Dark Age

Eclipse, an astrological phenomenon that occurs when one celestial body casts its shadow on another, is used as metaphor in this volume to describe, as Jacques Derrida has theorized, a contemporary revision of certain tenets of Enlightenment thought--a line of inquiry widely criticized by colonialist and postcolonialist scholars. The artists collected in this exhibition catalogue, Lucas Ajemian, MichaŽl Borremans, Nathalie Djurberg, Ellen Gallagher, Tom McCarthy's International Necronautical Society, Paul McCarthy, Mike Nelson, Anri Sala and Dana Schutz, offer a glimpse into the darkness--of our times and of the existential shadows of the human soul--guided by a contemporary revision of Enlightment thinking. Insisting on the right of art to be contradictory, politically incorrect and to use poetic license to speculate and experiment, these works are characterized by absurdity and dark humor. The book is published concurrently with an exhibition curated by Magnus af Petersens at Sweden's esteemed Moderna Museet.
