Abstract (English)

The theme of nature and meaning of the objects in the late 20th century unites this exhibition catalogue of work by ten international artists. The authors consider the problem of the visual's demise, the political and libidinal economy of the art object of today, the object's utilitarian dimension, strategies of global marketing and the decline of the United States. Biographical notes. Bibl. 3 p.
