Art since 1980: charting the contemporary

Kalb, Peter, author

'Art Since 1980' charts the story of art in contemporary global culture while holding up a mirror to our society. With over 300 pictures of painting, photography, sculpture, and installation, performance and video art, we are led on an illuminating journey via the individuals and communities who have shaped art internationally. The political and cultural transformations of the early 1980s developed a new era of accord between communist states and western-style economics. The art world has since been reconceived to include communities across the planet as the issues of feminism and racial politics came to the fore and the internet was born, changing forever the availability and distribution of visual material
