Postmodernism - Style and Subversion, 1970-1990

£80.00

Product description

The radical ideas associated with postmodernism swept through the arts in the 1970s, but have always resisted straightforward evaluation. Though criticised for its excesses, what came to be called postmodernism forever changed our understanding of style. This ground-breaking book presents the movement as not merely an aesthetic vocabulary, but also as a subversive attitude - a new way of looking at the world that resonates strongly today. Bringing together over 40 practitioners, historians, theorists and critics, this book assesses the impact of postmodernism on all areas of art and design.

Published to accompany the V & A exhibition 2011-2012.

Paperback. Condition - used, very good. Pages clean and spine tight. Almost no signs of wear. Lots of high quality full page illustrations.
