About the series

Each book in TASCHEN's Basic Genre series features:

  • approximately 100 color illustrations with explanatory captions
  • a detailed, illustrated introduction plus a timeline of the most important political, cultural, and social events that took place during that period
  • a selection of the most important works of the epoch, each presented on a two-page spread with a full-page image and accompanying interpretation, as well as a portrait and brief biography of the artist

  • "Dans les années 60, un mouvement avant-gardiste d'origine américaine relègue à l'arrière-plan les considérations artistiques et met l'accent sur le concept ou l'idée qui sous entend la réalisation de l'œuvre: l'art conceptuel. Une longue introduction précède les explication d'œuvres des 25 artistes contemporains. L'art conceptuel est vite devenu un mouvement international, aujourd'hui au cœur de l'actualité."
