Contemporary art can be baffling and beautiful, provocative and disturbing. This pioneering book presents a new look at the controversial period between 1945 and 2015, when art and its traditional forms were called into question. It focuses on the relationship between American and European art, and challenges previously held views about the origins of some of the most innovative ideas in art of this time. Major artists such as Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, Joseph Beuys, Gerhard Richter, Louise Bourgeois, Cindy Sherman, Jeff Koons, and Shiran Neshat are all discussed, as is the art world of the last fifty years. Important trends are also covered including Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art, Minimalism, Conceptualism, Postmodernism, and Performance Art. This revised and updated second edition includes a new chapter exploring art since 2000 and how globalization has caused shifts in the art world, an updated Bibliography, and 16 new, colour illustrations.

These days people love art especially contemporary art, which has become a constantly growing cultural factor. Fascinated by the artists' creative milieu, the public strives to share in its atmosphere of being something special. In a time of upheaval, this publication offers a look behind the scenes of the contemporary art world in which the triangle of artist, artwork, and viewer has long since been expanded many times over. The relationships between artist, collector, gallerist, curator, and critic frequently inform the works' very contents, and these aspects are increasingly represented in the works themselves. Many artists keep an eye on what happens in the art world and reflect the more and more lavish trade: from the creative process and the mounting of an exhibition to the rituals of the scene. English and German text.

Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, George Grosz, Emil Nolde, E.-L. Kirchner, Paul Klee, Franz Marc sowie die Österreicher Oskar Kokoschka und Egon Schiele gehörten der Generation der höchst individuellen Künstler an, die zu der impulsiven und oft auch kontroversen neuen Bewegung des Expressionismus in Deutschland und Österreich des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts beitrugen. Diese Publikation stellt ihre Arbeit vor und verbindet sie mit dem kulturellen Kontext und weiteren Bewegungen jener Zeit. Die Autorin, die Kunsthistorikerin Ashley Bassie, erklärt, wie die expressionistische Kunst den Weg zu einer neuen, intensiven, bewegenden Betrachtung psychologischer, emotionaler und sozialer Themen des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts bereitete. Dieses Buch untersucht die Entwicklung des Expressionismus und seine Hauptwerke und hebt die oft intensiven subjektiven Bilder, ihr Streben sowie die Konflikte hervor, aus denen der Expressionismus hervorging.

'In the POwer of Painting' is devoted to six artists - Andy Warhol, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Cy Twombly, Brice Marden, and Ross Bleckner. Selected groups of works from the Daros Collection, mainly from the artists' early periods, reveal their attitude towards painting and trace the emergence of an individual artistic expression and style in each case. The paintings from the years 1949 to 1998 cover the entire second half of the twentieth century, a turbulent period in the history of art, and irrefutably contradict the assertion of the end of painting.
