Summary

Unlike recent publications on Wall's work, this volume treats his oeuvre from a profoundly theoretical angle, inviting scholars to contribute to an understanding of the multi-layered character of his art and to focus on aspects that have up until now received little attention: Wall's reaction to the avant-garde discussion of the 1970s, his position within post-conceptual photography, his occupation with questions of film and film theory, his interest in popular iconography and his highly complex way of working. Published to accompany the noted exhibition at the Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig in Vienna, this essay collection also specifically concentrates on Wall's close link to the tradition of documentary photography and to photographers like Walker Evans and Dorothea Lange. Relevant to any discussion of contemporary photography, the book includes essays by Peter Brger, Homay King, Kaja Silverman, Fred Orton, and others.
