Painting is a Critical Form

Painting is a Critical Form

Helen Johnson

£20.00

Focusing on works by Juan Davila and Martin Kippenberger this book proposes an extended understanding of how painting can operate aesthetically, grounded in Immanuel Kant's formulation of aesthetic experience as implicitly connected to critical reflection. As a site for the production of meaning, painting is a rich field of loadings, neuroses and suggestiveness that can mesh with aesthetic qualities to make a charged conceptual space.
