On his book The Disappearance of Objects: New York Art and the Rise of the Postmodern City

Cover Interview of April 04, 2010

Editor’s note

Originally, this interview ran on the Rorotoko cover page under the headline

“Art and the Changing Texture of Urban Life.”

We highlighted two quotes.

On the first page:

“The purpose of The Disappearance of Objects is to tell this important chapter of postwar art history, but especially to place that strange history back in the context of a city undergoing incredibly rapid change.”

On the second:

“Judd’s work is totally independent of reference and, at the same time, deeply influenced by the contemporary landscape.”
