Aspects of Belgian Art After 1945
Vol. 2 " ...situates the Belgian art scene in an international context, whereby special attention is paid to the origins of the particular art movements. Every chapter is concluded with a discussion of one or more Belgian artists. These commentaries are not absolute truths with the validity of an instruction manual, but examples of interpretations. An artwork is after all an open sign to which the viewer can bring their own interpretation. Part II can be perfectly read without knowledge of Part I. It is not a consecutive story. Each chapter stands autonomously and is legible on its own. These are books that can be read back-to-front. The vision Willem Elias deploys has matured throughout his lifelong experience in the art world as an art critic, curator, teacher, committee member of advisory and governing boards and as an art theoretician, working mainly from the perspective of art philosophy. This all has led to a singular vision on the visual arts after 1945." -- Provided by publisher.
