The Dehumanization of Art: Jose Ortega y Gasset and Ad ReinhardtBy Peter Halley
Lately writers have defined post-modernism in various ways, but they share in common the belief that the age of modernist art is over and that a new set of theories is needed to describe art today.
I love art schools. They are just the only place where artists as students and teachers come together to talk about what makes works of art function; where issues of intentionality, syntax, and the responsibilities of authorship are regularly considered; and where success in galleries and the market is hardly ever a topic of conversation.
