Abstract (English)

Referring to mannerism, popular culture and appropriation, texts by 11 North American and European artists offer a political critique of existing cultural forms, with the aim of developing a theory of artistic practice, which would redefine the relationship of art to its audience. Biographical notes. Circa 250 bibl. ref.
