Synopsis

In this new collection of texts on visual art Peter Wollen explores an extraordinary range of topics, from an analysis of "Global Conceptualism" to a study of "Magritte and the Bowler Hat". The book includes provocative essays on the work of artists such as Victor Burgin, Frida Kahlo and Derek Jarman. Other essays deal with the relationships that have developed between visual art and other media, including one on the convergence of art and fashion and another that explores the role of art, along with film, in creating the American myth of the West. The collection also includes a study of situationist attitudes to art and architecture, as well as the relationship of art to dance and gardening.

Peter Wollen was Chair of the Department of Film, Television and New Media at the University of California, Los Angeles. His other books include "Paris/Hollywood: Writings on Film" and "Paris/Manhattan: Writings on Art."
