From the postwar works of Pablo Picasso and Alexander Deineka to the Border Film Project and web-based works of Beatriz da Costa, Art and Politics: a Small History of Art for Social Change since 1945 considers how artists visual or otherwise have engaged with major political and grassroots movements, particularly after 1960.
With its broad definition of the political, this book features chapters on post colonialism, feminism, the anti-war movement, environmentalism, gay rights and anti-globalization. It charts how individual artworks reverberated with enormous ideological shifts. While emphasizing the West, Art and Politics takes global developments into account as well - looking at art production practiced by postcolonial African, Latin American and Middle Eastern artists. Its case-study approach to the subject provides the reader with an overview of a most complex subject. This book will also challenge its readers to consider often devalued and marginalized political artworks as properly part of the history of modern and contemporary art.
'Whosoever wants to get a great overview and detailed information about art and politics should read Claudia Mesch's book. It gives sound information on the art of the twentieth century and the major artists that contributed to this important aspect of art, in a time when most artists today only produce pleasing art.' Salome (W. Cihlarz) painter, sculptor, and punk singer 'Art and Politics' is a succinct history of political art that recovers important, marginalized artists. But more, it conveys the continuing need for art that reconfigures, regroups, and redirects the collective, and as such is a great resource for practicing artists.' Delinda Collier, Assistant Professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies, School of the Art Institute of Chicago.商品の説明をすべて表示する
