Accompanying an ambitious exhibition designed to summarize the state of art at the beginning of the 1990s and to illustrate the rise of an artistic vocabulary drawn from urban life, popular culture and the traditions of Dada and Pop art, this catalogue presents an excellent pictorial survey of installations, paintings, sculptures and photography-based works by some 70 international artists, among them emerging figures as well as established artists such as Baselitz, Gilbert & George, Kounellis, Wall, Woodrow, Armleder, Borofsky and Ruscha. Ten essays by art critics and social philosophers offer diverse characterizations of the dominant new trends in art and the art market, discuss the artistic implications of political upheavals in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, and address such issues as the status of images in contemporary society and the psychological effect of their pervasiveness and proliferation.
