Item description for Another Future: Poetry and Art in a Postmodern Twilight by Alan Gilbert...

How do we write and think about poetry and visual art in the wake of postmodernism? Questions like this are central to poetry and art, especially when taught within an academic context. Another Future is a collection of critical essays on contemporary poetry, art, culture, and politics that investigates the current state of these fields by bringing together writings on the work of a number of poets and visual artists. Reading the social poetically and poetry socially, Gilbert illuminates poetic and artistic practices in the present and creates a new discourse for thinking beyond postmodernism. Both meticulous and comprehensive, Another Future makes an important contribution to the critical discussion of contemporary poetry and cultural aesthetics.

Essays cover authors, artists, and topics such as the Barbie Liberation Organization, Anselm Berrigan, Brenda Coultas, documentary aesthetics, Benjamin Friedlander, globalization, Andreas Gursky, Renee Gladman, Kevin Killian, David LaChapelle, Harryette Mullen, Mark Nowak, Keith Piper, pirate radio, "post-black" art, Martha Rosler, Edward Sanders, Andrew Schelling, Allan Sekula, September 11th, Prageeta Sharma, Roberto Tejada, Lorenzo Thomas, Anne Waldman, and the Zapatistas.

Reviews - What do customers think about Another Future: Poetry and Art in a Postmodern Twilight?

An anthology of critical essays about contemporary poetry, art, culture, and politics  Apr 5, 2006
Another Future: Poetry And Art In Postmodern Twilight is an anthology of critical essays about contemporary poetry, art, culture, and politics by independent scholar and poet Alan Gilbert. Divided into three sections, "Considering How Material Documents Can Be", "Territories and Other Forms of Knowing", and "Meaning Politics Without Regrets", Another Future questions the social context of modern poetry and charters a discourse for thinking about contemporary culture in terms beyond post-modernism. A scrutiny so meticulous as to resemble a documentary, Another Future is especially recommended reading for students of modern poetry.
