Abstract (English)

While Sangster poses the idea of thinking through abstract objects, Grosz's analysis takes into account signs, meaning and matter and the function in abstract art. Bois's historical essay interrogates notions of political utopias in the 1920s. Biographical notes on nine international artists. Includes artists' pages. Circa 100 bibl. ref.
