About this item

Material Imagination: Art in Europe, 1946--72

Material Imagination examines the interrelated concepts of matter, materialism, and materiality in postwar European art, from 1946 to 1972. In the postwar period, European artistic experiment prioritized material dimensions over concept or context. The eight essays in this volume bring together new research and exceptional illustrations to provide a unique perspective on this period, while also paying attention to broader theoretical and historical concerns. The essays explore artists' methods and materials in order to understand better the social and cultural environments in which their works of art were made. Taken together, these essays demonstrate how an emphasis on materials can affect artistic thinking and imagination and lead to a richer and more diverse framework for critical interpretation
