Essay on Contemporary European Art
XX-XXI, Vol. 1
John C. Welchman
This volume collects more than a dozen essays by art historian and critical theorist John C. Welchman written over the past decade on a range of contemporary European artists and their negotiation of history. While all were composed in the 21st century, two entries—one on the Hungarian-American artist Orshi Drozdik and the other on London-based American artist Susan Hiller, anchor the volume in concerns that emerged at the end of the 1960s within the first generation to follow the Conceptual and Minimalist movements. The remaining essays discuss the recent work of 12 artists, several only in midcareer, mostly produced immediately before and after 2000. The artists included are Cosima von Bonin, Andy Hope 1930, Nathaniel Mellors, Thomas Raat and Nicola Stäglich, among others.
