First Edition, 1990. "Using imagery and language appropriated from twentieth-century popular culture the iconoclastic American artist sets out to confound our conditioned sense of the world. This first full-scale monograph of teh artist's work explores the ways in which Baldessari has decisively altered the course of contemporary art, the rold of photography, and the role of the artist. In three provocative and thoughtful essays, van Bruggen traces Baldessari's gradual shift from the creation of imagist mind games in the 1960s through his intellectual analyses of social codes in the late 1970s and early 1980s. In addition, the texts provide a chronological overview of the artist's career and a penetrating study of the use of narrative and dream structure in the work of th e1970s and 1980s." from the jacke flap.
