Abstract (English)

Kwon traces the development of site-specific art from the 1960s to the 1990s, examining site-specificity as a locus of the dynamic relationship between place and identity in late capitalism. The author distinguishes the more recent work from the earlier by highlighting how it points to the exhaustion of the rhetoric of political progressivism inherent in the practice. Characterising community as an inoperative spectre, Kwon calls for new models of belonging. Index. Circa 300 bibl. ref.
