Summary A documentary series about contemporary art in the 1980s and its relationship with the world in which we live. Filmed in Europe, the United States, and Australia in 1985-1986, the six programmes feature many key artists including Joseph Beuys, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cindy Sherman,. Antony Gormley, Hans Haacke, and Eric Fischl. Framing the works and ideas of these artists is the intellectual context of the time, and especially the contemporary concerns of post-modernism. Each segment adopts a thematic approach, with episodes looking at history, value, imagination, politics, sexuality, and identity.
