Abstract (English)

"Modernism and Modernity: The Vancouver Conference Papers [...] was originally published as the proceedings from a conference held in Vancouver, BC., in 1983. With papers by Buchloh, T.J. Clark, Hollis Clayson, Thomas Crow, Nicole Dubrueil-Blonding, Clement Greenberg, Henri Lefebvre, Marcelin Pleynet, Allan Sekula, Paul Hayes Thucker and John Wilson Foster, this publication constitues a major contribution to the rethinking of the history and debates concerning modernism and modernity. The Modernism and Modernity papers challenged both the orthodoxies of Greenberg in modernism and the reductive view of modernism then taking shape within the emerging doctrine of postmodernism. A guest at the conference, Greenberg presented a paper defending the modernist theories of the postwar period, which he was instrumental in developing at the time." -- p. [4] of the cover.
