The Melancholy of Conceptualism
Chapter 5 is a ficto-critical piece on Conceptualism dedicated to the anthropologist Michael Taussig. It provides an overview of the critical literature on allegory after 1950. It is part collage, part fantasy, part critique, part appropriated and overwritten text, and itself includes several short allegories of the Conceptual poetry scene. It focuses critically on pieces from Craig Dworkin’s Strand, which it reads as classic postmodern allegorical transcodings between poetry and other discourses.
