The Anti-Art: A Visual Discourse on Transience


#FindYour Weird

In their seminal 1969 essay, Art After Philosophy, Joseph Kosuth declared the culmination of traditional art-historical dialogue. They proposed a radical exploration into how art attains cultural significance and claims its status as art.

Embracing an analytical stance, as per Kosuth, art assumes the presence of an aesthetic entity meeting the criteria of "artness." Broken Glass adopts a similar linguistic approach to delve into the intricate web of social, political, cultural, and economic contexts shaping existence. Glass uses language as a medium also, resulting in intellectual provocation supplanting perception as words usurp images, objects, and the very essence of being human. Broken Glass is an award-winning poet, a scholar with working-class roots, and an activist from a Latinx background.

This curated arrangement of artworks, The Anti-Art: A Visual Discourse on Transience, establishes historical resonances and generates new reflections on our relationship to class, history and our own psych: “historical scars, social realities, and the transient self”.

Glass spearheads an assault on conventional aesthetics, responding to the intricacies of life in late capitalism, Eurocentrism and performative power. Inherited from these artists is a deconstructive approach to art, where critiquing the production of meaning and power takes precedence over mere communication.
