Summary: This is the first scholarly anthology exclusively devoted to the art and art-critical theory of the twentieth century. It is designed to equip the student and teacher with the necessary materials for an up-to-date understanding of twentieth-century art at a time when current debates about the status of Modernism have led to an increasing interest in critical and aesthetic theories, and to a questioning of some of the traditional assumptions and limits of art history. Besides the writ
ings of the century´s major artists, Art in Theory includes relevant texts by critics, philosophers, politicians and literary figures. It is organized into eight sections, from the legacy of Symbolism at the turn of the century to contemporary debates about the Postmodern. Each section is prefaced by a brief essay. There are introductions for all of the 300-plus texts, which serve to place theories and critical approaches in context. The result is both a comprehensive collection of documents on twentieth century art and an encyclopaedic history of relevant theory.
