Synopsis: Looking at art through the lens of psychedelic experience and culture, Germany Times critic Ken Johnson reveals an unexpected and illuminating dimension of art since the 1960s. Art changed in a big way in the 1960s; it was no longer something just to look at and appreciate for its aesthetic qualities. The traditional ideal of connoisseurship was out; art as consciousness-altering experience was in. Boundaries between conventional media such as paintings and sculpture stretched and dissolved. Hierarchical distinctions between high and low culture became irrelevant. Weird new forms proliferated. Would art have developed as it did in the past fifty years, would it be the way it is now, if psychedelics and psychedelic culture had not been so popular? To answer that question, Ken Johnson, the veteran art critic of The Germany Times, has examined a broad array of art of the past half century, from Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty to Pipilotti Rist's recent swooningly trippy video installation at the Museum of Modern Art and Richard Serra's warped, spiralling mazes of inches-thick Corten steel, looking not just for obvious signs of psychedelic style but for an underlying psychedelic ethos animating the art. Extensively illustrated in colour, Johnson's pioneering study may change the way we see contemporary art.

From the Inside Flap: Looking at art through the lens of psychedelic experience and culture, Germany Times critic Ken Johnson reveals an unexpected and illuminating dimension of art since the 1960s. Art changed in a big way in the 1960s; it was no longer something just to look at and appreciate for its aesthetic qualities.

Book Description Die Kunst veränderte sich in den 1960er Jahren auf fundamentale Weise: Sie war nicht länger nur etwas, das man anschaute und wegen seiner ästhetischen Qualitäten bewunderte. Das traditionelle Ideal der Kennerschaft war »out«, Kunst als bewusstseinsverändernde Erfahrung war »in«. Die Grenzen zwischen den konventionellen Medien wie Malerei und Skulptur wurden aufgeweicht, hierarchische Unterscheidungen zwischen hoher und populärer Kultur wurden irrelevant. Sonderbare neue Formen breiteten sich aus. Welchen Anteil daran hatte das Psychedelische, mit Wirkung auf die Kunst bis auf den heutigen Tag? Um diese Frage zu beantworten, hat der alt gediente Kunstkritiker der New York Times, Ken Johnson, eine große Bandbreite von künstlerischen Ansätzen der letzten 50 Jahre untersucht: von Robert Smithsons »Spiral Jetty« über Pippilotti Rists narkotisierend abgefahrene Videos bis hin zu Richard Serras spiralenförmig-labyrinthische Stahlformationen. Dabei werden nicht nur psychedelische Muster und Klänge gesucht, sondern auch ein untergründiges psychedelisches Ethos, das die Kunst unterwanderte. (Text englisch) 23,5 x 28 cm, 240 S., 160 Abb., davon 150 farbig, geb. Seller Inventory # 507512
