Abstract

Poéticas arquitectónicas en el arte contemporáneo is a book in which two historically related disciplines, plastic arts and architecture, look at each other, here in the time between 1970 and 2008. For this occasion, the story is written from the perspective of art, most of them deeply conceptual works, and critically challenging the political postulates of mainstream ideologies. Throughout the nine chapters in the book, David Moriente discusses on how contemporary artists have "architecturized" their work, for example, through a process of hybridizations between architecture and sculpture, or also from installation art. These pages also pay special attention to a critical perspective of the urban space from photography, away from a traditional documentary aesthetics and with high doses of fiction. They also offer particular prominence to the great contemporary artists such as Gordon Matta-Clark, Gregor Schneider and Santiago Sierra, and their unclassifiable proposals. Altogether, nearly 10 heterogeneous perspectives confirm that the latest contemporary art sets itself to long distance from the specificity and purity of the art media, and that architecture is one of the triggers of these fruitful transgressions.
