Medieval modern; art out of time.


Medieval modern; art out of time.

Nagel, Alexander.

Thames & Hudson


312 pages




Modern contemporary artistic practices and productions share deep connections to medieval artistic practices and works, argues Nagel (Institute of Fine Arts, New York U.), who describes how central aspects of artistic modernism also featured in earlier periods of artistic production through a series of chapters that identify connecting patterns and themes between modern and pre-modern eras. Key themes explored through the course of the volume include installations that internalize and project out into their environments, repetition and replication in art, collage, and conceptual art and its critique of the fetishism of the art object.
