Postscript: Writing After Conceptual Art
Postscripts: Writing After Conceptual Art
Edited by Andrea Andersson
One of the most important movements in twenty-first-century literature is the emergence of conceptual writing. By knowingly drawing on the histories of art and literature, conceptual writing upended traditional categorical conventions.
Postscript is the first collection of writings on the subject of conceptual writing by a diverse field of scholars in the realms of art, literature, media, as well as the artists' themselves. Using new and old technology, and textual and visual modes, including appropriation, transcription, translation, redaction, and repetition, the contributors actively challenge the existing scholarship on conceptual art. And they demonstrate the ways in which conceptual art, rather than segregating the work of visual artists from that of writers is, and remains, a mutually supportive interaction between the arts.
