Synopsis

2000 and Beyond Contemporary Tendencies(Vol 5 Art of 20th Cent.) by Valerio Terraroli

The fifth book in the series, this volume concludes this extraordinary publishing project by analyzing the fascinating and controversial phenomena of contemporary art. Volume V maintains the structure that characterizes the four previous publications, namely a spectacular gallery of images, essays by major contemporary critics and the clever juxtaposition of the most diverse objects and topics. In contrast, it abandons the historical and thematic reconstructions and reference to the most familiar names and scientific categories, to which contemporary events, by their very nature, cannot be subject. And it chooses to describe the multi-faceted tendencies of the contemporary age as day-to-day events, which as such directly concern readers.
