Return to Book Page. Just as the artists of the optical unconscious assaulted the idea of autonomy and visual mastery, Rosalind Krauss abandons the historian’s voice of objective detachment and forges a new style of writing in this book: I have filled the margins with comments and exclamations and that is a very bad sign.
I frequently have trouble with art criticism but I’m going to give this a try because a photographer I respect recommended it. Half-way through and I am done. Kraussalso gives us the story that Alfred Barr, Meyer Shapiro, and Clement Greenberg repressed, the storyof a small, disparate group of artists who defied modernism’s most cherished self-descriptions,giving rise to an unruly, disruptive force that persistently haunted the field of modernism from thes to the s and continues to disrupt it today.
Partly, I am trying to decide if the main reason I always end up being so annoyed by art criticism is because it is usually written by people for whom the story about the art is more important than the image itself.

In order to understand why modernism had to repress the optical unconscious, Krauss eavesdrops on Roger Fry in the salons of Bloomsbury, and spies on the toddler John Ruskin as he amuses himself with the patterns of a rug; we find krauuss in the living room of Clement Greenberg as he complains about “smart Jewish girls with their typewriters” in the s, and in colloquy with Michael Fried about Frank Stella’s love of baseball.
