French writer and curator Nicolas Bourriaud discusses how, since the early nineties, an ever increasing number of artworks have been created on the basis of preexisting works; more and more artists interpret, reproduce, re-exhibit, or use works made by others or available cultural products.
This art of postproduction seems to respond to the proliferating chaos of global culture in the information age, which is characterized by an increase in the supply of works and the art world’s annexation of forms ignored or disdained until now.
This book has been published in French by Les presses du réel in 2004.
French art critic, theoretician and curator, Nicolas Bourriaud (born 1965) was co-founder and co-director of the Palais de Tokyo in Paris (2000-2006), Gulbenkian Curator for Contemporary Art at Tate Britain, director of the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris.
