About this product
- DescriptionBad New Days looks back at the last 25 years of artistic practice in Western Europe and North America, positioning it in relation to a general condition of emergency that neoliberalism and the war of terror have brought with them. Foster argues that art has actually anticipated this condition, at times miming the collapse of the social contract, at other times resisting it, and at still other times exacerbating it critically. Against the assumption that art longer heeds any model, he also offers several paradigms of practice over this period, which he terms abject, archival, mimetic, and precarious.
- Author BiographyHal Foster is Townsend Martin Professor of Art and Archaeology at Princeton University and a 2014-15 fellow at the Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers at the New York Public Library.
