VOLUME 11 NUMBER 3 & 4 IN ASSOCIATION WITH ARTSCRIBE
This double issue of Audio Arts is devoted to examining the current tendencies, themes and issues of contemporary art in Europe.
Recordings were made during July and August 1991 with artists, curators, dealers and critics in Nice, Cologne, Berlin, Leipzig, Dublin and London by William Furlong and Michael Archer. Contributors were asked whether or not they felt there has been a shift in emphasis between art of the 80s and 90s, and if so, to try and define the character of that change. Is it the result of an inevitable exhaustion of interest and a consequent turn in the fashion cycle, or is it in some way due to recent social, political and economic changes in Europe? What are the important issues for art in the 90s? Questions were also asked about the seeming dominance of the New York - Cologne axis and, more generally, the relationships which exist in the various centres of production between local, national and international perspectives on art.
