IN TERMS OF PAINTING

Written by Eva Ehninger
Rooted in the international conference Hidden Forces: Painting in the 1960s and 1970s (MMK Frankfurt, 2013), this book reconsiders the role of painting through essays that examine its presence and practice in this defining period of postmodernism. As such, painting can be seen as an embattled parameter in an evolving anti-formalist discourse, a parallel activity within an artists oeuvre, or as conceptually integrated in another medium. Besides a reconsideration of artists like Donald Judd, John Baldessari, and Robert Morris, it provides in-depth analyses of lesser-known artistic positions, and of those whose relation to painting has remained largely unexplored until now.Rooted in the international conference Hidden Forces: Painting in the 1960s and 1970s (MMK Frankfurt, 2013), this book reconsiders the role of painting through essays that examine its presence and practice in this defining period of postmodernism.
