BETWEEN THE BLACK BOX AND THE WHITE CUBE
EXPANDED CINEMA AND POSTWAR ART
Category: Contemporary art essay
Today, the moving image is ubiquitous in global contemporary art. The first book to tell the story of the postwar expanded cinema that inspired this omnipresence, Between the Black Box and the White Cube travels back to the 1950s and 1960s, when the rise of television caused movie theaters to lose their monopoly over the moving image, leading cinema to be installed directly alongside other forms of modern art.
