This volume is a collection of texts that offer us an insight into a Richard Hamilton who strives to interpret the nature of artistic production and the role of different techniques and media, the processes of conception and transformation of materials, and the moral position of the artist in relation to his practice. Focusing on issues that range from an interest in photographic paper as a vehicle rather than a technique, to the practical possibilities of polaroids and the relationship between art and advertising, the texts collected here evoke an analysis of the artist's position with regard to the industry, to the art system and to the distorting effect that particular political and mass media interests can bring about in current events.
