Product Description

Review

Branden Joseph's strikingly original study of Robert Rauschenberg will also be influential as a remarkable cultural history of the intersection of art, media, and technology in the 1960s. Among the book's great merits are its stunning de-familiarization of a well known artist's work and its impressive reconsideration of the political stakes in the aesthetic practices of the period.

(Jonathan Crary, Meyer Schapiro Professor of Modern Art and Theory, Columbia University)



Bruno's command of theory helps her unravel what is meaningful in kinds of art that have become pervasive: rambling installation and artwork that takes on architecture. Her writing is distinguished from that of, for instance, ohn Rajchman or Anthony Vidler by her signature personal texture and inventive wordplay.

(Yasmeen M. Siddiqui Modern Painters)
