201 indexed pages including b/w illustrations. A re-reading of the modernist tradition in the visual arts that provides a unique view of the history of modern art and art criticism. Concentrating on canonical critical texts and images, the book examines modern art through a rhetoric of representation rather than through formalist criticism or the history of the avant-garde. This book offers an extremely valuable overview of visual arts discourses through a rigorous examination of the rhetoric of 19th and 20th century critical writing and art practice. This work is an important contribution toward remapping modernist objects, subjects, and spaces. Johanna Drucker is an academic, author, visual theorist, and cultural critic.
