About this title

Synopsis:

This anthology presents over two decades of the most memorable issues and events of contemporary art as seen through the pages of Flash Art, the controversial, contradictory art magazine that has influenced both cultural taste and artistic development for twenty-one years.

From Arte Povera, Process Art, Conceptual Art, Performance Art, and Post-Conceptualism to Pictures, the Transavantgarde, the East Village, and NeoConceptualism, Flash Art has functioned as both forum and catalyst for current art trends.

The book includes such artists and theorists as Bernd and Hilla Becher, Rebecca Horn, Joseph Kosuth, John Baldessari, Gordon Matta-Clark, Sherrie Levine, Gilles Deleuze, Edward Ruscha, Mimmo Paladino, Jean-François Lyotard, Frank Stella, Julia Kristeva, Jean Baudrillard, Fredric Jameson, Jeff Koons, Donald Judd, Peter Halley, David Salle, Gerhard Richter, and Germano Celant. It documents the magazine's policy and trajectory throughout the course of contemporary culture a policy that has been consistently concerned with capturing the new and the radical, transforming them inevitably, into the event.

Giancarlo Politi is the founder, publisher, and editor of Flash Art. Helena Kontova has been coeditor since 1977. A Flash Art Book. Distributed by The MIT Press.
