Dialogue criticism: interviews about art and current thought
description n recent years, the work of Anna María Guasch, both as a critic, essayist, author of books and editor has been very relevant. Guasch has developed a pedagogical activity and approach to the reader in Spanish language to international debates in art, both in his books and in his work as editorial director of the AKAL / Contemporary Art collection, publishing some crucial books that had not been translated into Spanish, some of them written by the interviewees in his latest book, The Dialogue Critique. Interviews about art and current thought. The critical dialogue consists of 12 interviews with 10 important art critics, Benjamin Buchloh, Donald Kuspit, Arthur Danto, Rosalind Krauss, Hal Foster, Thomas Crow, Serge Guilbaut, Lucy Lippard, Griselda Pollock and Douglas Crimp. These interviews were conducted in the United States and Spain between 2000 and 2005, trying to offer an approach to contemporary critical discourse from the interview, where dialogue and opinion matter more than the biographical details or the hard theory. The interviews revolve around some essential concerns: What has been the transition from high modernity - exemplified by the criticism model of Clement Greenberg - to postmodernity, and what remains of it? Can modernity still exist? What is the current function of art criticism? How does this art critic work in its two most used formats: journalistic criticism and hard theory? And finally: What are these critics - some of them historical figures - doing in the present? Anna Maria Guasch has chosen a generation of intellectuals, mainly North Americans, who faced both the formalistic reductionism of Clement Greenberg and subsequently built an idea of postmodernism that would oppose consumer pluralism and everything goes from the 80s. This is a group of theorists that recognize their debt with authors and debates of the pre-war, in particular Adorno and Benjamin, and with post-structuralism in the figures of Michel Foucault, Jacques Derrida and Roland Barthes. The critical dialogue finalized a very complete professional and personal experience that Anna María Guasch has developed in the United States, approaching a group of brilliant intellectuals and perhaps we only knew through her most famous texts. Anna María Guasch has established a bridge for us with characters that represent a critical, courageous tradition and in open opposition to conformity, and from which, unfortunately, we are quite far away.

En los últimos años, el trabajo de Anna María Guasch, tanto como crítica, ensayista, autora de libros y editora ha sido muy pertinente. Guasch ha desarrollado una actividad pedagógica y de acercamiento al lector en lengua española a los debates internacionales en arte, tanto en sus libros como en su trabajo como directora editorial de la colección AKAL/Arte contemporáneo, publicando algunos libros cruciales que no habían sido traducidos al español, algunos de ellos escritos por los entrevistados en su último libro, La crítica dialogada. Entrevistas sobre arte y pensamiento actual. La crítica dialogada está compuesto por 12 entrevistas a 10 importantes críticos de arte, Benjamín Buchloh, Donald Kuspit, Arthur Danto, Rosalind Krauss, Hal Foster, Thomas Crow, Serge Guilbaut, Lucy Lippard, Griselda Pollock y Douglas Crimp.Estas entrevistas fueron realizadas en Estados Unidos y España entre 2000 y 2005, intentando ofrecer un acercamiento al discurso crítico contemporáneo desde la entrevista, donde el diálogo y la opinión importan más que los detalles biográficos ó la teoría dura. Las entrevistas giran alrededor de algunas preocupaciones esenciales: Cuál ha sido el tránsito de la alta modernidad -ejemplificada por el modelo de crítica de Clement Greenberg- a la postmodernidad, y que nos queda de ello? Puede aún existir la modernidad? Cuál es la función actual de la crítica de arte? Cómo opera ésta crítica de arte en sus dos formatos más utilizados: La crítica periodística y la teoría dura ? Y por último: Qué están haciendo éstos críticos -algunos de ellos figuras históricas- en el presente?Anna María Guasch ha escogido una generación de intelectuales, principalmente norteamericanos, que se enfrentaron tanto al reduccionismo formalista de Clement Greenberg construyendo posteriormente una idea de posmodernidad que se opondría al pluralismo consumista y al everything goes de los años 80. Es este un grupo de teóricos que reconocen su deuda con autores y debates de la preguerra, en concreto Adorno y Benjamín, y con el post estructuralismo en las figuras de Michel Foucault, Jaques Derrida y Roland Barthes.La crítica dialogada finaliza una muy completa experiencia profesional y personal que Anna María Guasch ha desarrollado en los Estados Unidos, acercándose a un grupo de intelectuales brillantes y que quizá solo conocíamos a través de sus textos más afamados. Anna María Guasch ha establecido un puente para nosotros con unos personajes que representan una tradición crítica, valiente y en abierta oposición a la conformidad, y de la cuál, desafortunadamente nos encontramos bastante alejados.  2007-01-03 2020-06-04T21:43:45Z 2020-06-04T21:43:45Z info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion https://revistas.udistrital.edu.co/index.php/c14/article/view/1186 10.14483/21450706.1186 http://hdl.handle.net/11349/23890 spa https://revistas.udistrital.edu.co/index.php/c14/article/view/1186/1570 https://revistas.udistrital.edu.co/index.php/c14/article/view/1186/1571 application/pdf text/html Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas Calle 14 revista de investigación en el campo del arte; Vol. 1 Núm. 1 (2007): El autor y la autoría; 173-176 CALLE14: revista de investigación en el campo del arte; Vol 1 No 1 (2007): El autor y la autoría; 173-176 2145-0706 2011-3757
