Abstract :
Surveys shifts in ideology in art criticism from the 1970s to the present, focusing on the writings of a group of critics associated with the journal October, including Rosalind Krauss and Michael Fried. Examines their debt to earlier critics of modernism (Walter Benjamin, Clement Greenberg and Theodor Adorno). Traces much of the early October criticism on photography by Krauss back to the work of the American semiotician Charles S. Peirce, and eventually uses Peirce's notions of indexicality and representation to comment on current trends in art. ;
