Neo-avant-garde

by

Perhaps through attrition, perhaps through sheer tenacity, the avant-garde of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s is deemed ripe for a re-reading. Fortunately these 20 articles take an interdisciplinary approach and has the advantage of enough time passing to insert a modicum of distance, although certainly not reverence. Topics include the fine arts, with contributions on Duchamp and Morris and their takes on death and irony, work across art forms, such as neo-dada performance art and concrete poetry as well as film, work at the periphery, such as that in Brazil's self-styled position as vanguard of the 1950s, the attempt to produce avant-garde radio, the trouble with gender and the avant-garde, the new political situationalist avant-garde, and theoretical reflections ranging from nature and ecology to the uses of structure and repetition.
