Conceptual Art in a Curatorial Perspective: Between Dematerialization and Documentation

Research output: Book/ReportBookAcademic

Abstract

Conceptual Art in a Curatorial Perspective: Between Dematerialization and Documentation focuses on the curatorial practice regarding conceptual art. The fact that works of conceptual art are not object-based creates challenges in exhibiting or re-exhibiting these works. This book offers various perspectives on the historical disclosure of conceptual art within the context of the public museum. Based on three detailed case studies and an extensive introduction various paradoxes of conceptual art are analyzed. The book also elaborates on the history of conceptual art and artists' positions, as well as the influence of curators in the art historical canonization of conceptual art.
