Product Description
By the end of the 1960s a revolution had taken place in the perception and practice of art in Europe and North America. The cultural and political context for this change reflected the desire for social transformation expressed in clashes with authority, such as the protests against the Vietnam War, that signalled a counterculture's defiance of established values. This book, the first detailed account of developments centred around the conceptual art movement, highlights the main issues underlying visually disparate works dating from the second half of the 1960s to the end of the 1970s.
