The latest Art Bulletin includes eight reviews of the recently published textbook, Art Since 1900, by Hal Foster, Rosalind Krauss, Yve-Alain Bois, and Benjamin Buchloh. Several of the reviewers find that the book is possibly too advanced for undergraduates. Many of them also suggest that the Foster, Krauss, Bois and Buchloh have created a new, authoritarian and unselfcritical master narrative. In this connection, it’s surprising that no reviewer quotes from the book’s roundtable in which one speaker asks for a discussion of the authors’ own biases, only to receive no real answer.
