The Medium in the Post-Medium Condition
Isabelle Graw & Ewa Lajer-Burcharth (Eds.)
In response to recent developments in pictorial practice and critical discourse, Painting beyond Itself: The Medium in the Post-Medium Condition seeks to historicize and propose new approaches to the question of medium. This book—the second this season from the highly respected series from the Institut für Kunstkritik—is based on two conferences, one at Harvard University and the other in Berlin, which focused on the changing role of the medium in establishing painting as a privileged practice, discourse and institution of modernity. Bringing together an international group of scholars, critics, and artists, Painting beyond Itself,/i> is a forum for a rich historical, theoretical and practice-grounded conversation. Organized by Ewa Lajer-Burcharth, Harvard University and Isabelle Graw, Städelschule, Frankfurt. Contributors include Carol Armstrong, Benjamin H. D. Buchloh, Sabeth Buchmann, René Démoris, Isabelle Graw, David Joselit, Jutta Koether, Ewa Lajer-Burcharth, Jacqueline Lichtenstein, Julie Mehretu, Matt Saunders and Amy Sillman.
