Art Rethought

Nicholas Wolterstorff

Oxford University Press

In the twentieth century there emerged, within the visual art world, an important and influential movement of art-reflexive art, that is, art that raises questions about art and is thus art about art. The chapter identifies the intellectual and institutional conditions that must be present for art to raises questions about art. Works of Marcel Duchamp and of Andy Warhol are discussed in some detail. The chapter closes by asking whether their work has lost its art-reflexive function.

Keywords:   art-reflexive art, Marcel Duchamp, questions about art, ready-mades, Andy Warhol
