Abstract (English)

Essays by Magnani, Salvioni and Verzotti call attention to how thirty-three contemporary artists deconstruct socio-cultural codes by employing postmodern media-oriented practices. The concepts of authorship, autonomy and originality are discussed in relation to the modernist avant-garde's critique of the spectacle. Includes artists' statements. Brief biographical notes on artists. 16 bibl. ref.
