|John C. WelchmanPast Realization: Essays on Contemporary European Art
XX–XXI, Vol. 1
This volume is a collection of dynamic and engaged writings by art historian John C. Welchman on a range of contemporary European artists: Vasco Araújo, Cosima von Bonin, Jan De Cock, Orshi Drozdik, Susan Hiller, Andy Hope 1930, Michael Kunze, Nathaniel Mellors, Miguel Palma, José Álvaro Perdices, Sascha Pohle, Thomas Raat, Nicola Stäglich, and Xavier Veilhan. Anchored in concerns that emerged in the late 1960s and 1970s, Welchman poses thoughtful and provocative questions about how these artists receive and negotiate the social and aesthetic histories through which they live and work.
Past Realization inaugurates XX–XXI, John C. Welchman’s two-part series on European art from this and the last century, which will be followed by a series on West Coast artists and one on the work of Mike Kelley.
