CONCEPTS D'ART CONTEMPORAIN / CONTEMPORARY ART CONCEPTS / CONCETTI D'ARTE CONTEMPORANEA

CO.AR.CO. is a site in progress that proposes to present analyses and concrete achievements based on the central topics of our period: culture of the memory, post-minimalism, post-conceptual and antimodernism.

Its goal is either to offer a historical and theoretical reading of the trajectory of such concepts, or to propose prospectiveness to the emergent culture.

Its tools are the institutional criticism, the recovery of the work of art based on the process and the auto-reflexive production, the dialectics, the critical negation.

In other words, we will seek to rebuild the climate of the arising contemporary art by showing its philosophical and political implications, by analyzing its developments of production and reproduction.

In these pages, the reader will thus find essential allusions on the protagonists at the origin of the most radical phenomena of the art, the politics and the philosophy of these forty last years, but also vast openings towards rising generation of artists and thinkers engaged in the realization of the contemporary culture.
