Ten attempts at contemporary art



This book is an attempt to reduce the experience of communicating contemporary art over the last two and a half decades to a few essential elements and to show the limits of the arts today. It contains a detailed introduction, this is the main part and every ten chapter is divided into three parts, in the end of the book you find a glossary of terms and a paragraph on impossible criticism.   On the basis of descriptions of selected works Coincidentia offers a representative overview of contemporary art. In connection with introductory radio plays and personally emphasised stories, these ten attempts break through the familiar pattern of engaging with art.   Artists: Guillaume Bijl, Jeff Koons, Marina Abramović, Jeff Wall, Louise Bourgeois, Bill Viola, James Turrell, Douglas Gordon, Olafur Eliasson
