    One thought on “Moscow Symposium: Conceptualism Revisited (e-flux journal)”

    1. La política, en ocasiones, condiciona la actitud del arte con su pueblo. Las reflexiones que aquí se dan cita cuestionan el rol del arte, en especial del arte conceptual, en la unión soviética. Es curioso que haya más énfasis en el artista que en la obra. No estoy seguro de que esto ayude a comprender el arte conceptual. Creo que ayuda a estudiar una política, no una poética.
