Item description for Half Square Half Crazy by Eric Mangion Lili Reynaud Dewar...
This provocative publication explores the reexamination or the redeployment of forms and devices drawn from Minimal art by numerous contemporary artists. Taking into account their present adoption by the culture and design industries, the featured artists update the inherent contradiction of the neo-avant-gardes of the 1960s--between their aspiration for the autonomy of art, and the heteronomy of the means to achieve this. Looking back on the aporias of such an historical heritage, the practices discussed here start afresh, initiate a new game, which privileges accident rather than essence, "non-formalism" rather than formal resolution and disfunctionality rather than efficient rationality.
