The Anti-Aesthetic: Essays on Postmodern Culture

Hal Foster


For the prior thirty years, Hal Foster has driven the limits of cultural feedback, developing a vantage element from which the doubtless disparate agendas of artists, consumers, and critics have a telling coherence. In The Anti-Aesthetic, preeminent critics equivalent to Jean Baudrillard, Rosalind Krauss, Fredric Jameson, and Edward stated examine the whole diversity of postmodern cultural construction, from the writing of John Cage, to Cindy Sherman's movie stills, to Barbara Kruger's collages. With a redesigned hide and a brand new afterword that situates the booklet in terms of modern feedback, The Anti-Aesthetic offers a powerful creation for beginners and some degree of reference for these already engaged in discussions of postmodern paintings, tradition, and feedback. incorporates a new afterword by means of Hal Foster and 12 black and white photographs.
