Ideas recibidas. Un vocabulario para la cultura artística contemporánea
Cinema, criticism, museum, white cube, performance, pop, audience and subjectivity are some of the concepts crucial to contemporary art. Inspired by Raymond Williams' Keywords (1976), this is an attempt to update a specific lexicon, just as Williams attempted to eliminate the traditional boundary between the artistic and the social. This book compiles the lectures given in the context of a course at MACBA in the fall of 2007 and 2008.
While there are ideas about psychological and emotional developmental processes held within the sculptures I make, the things themselves are actual physical explorations into thinking, feeling, communicating and relating.
