Occupational Hazard: Critical Writing on Recent British Art

Occupational Hazard

Naomi Siderfin; Duncan McCorquodale; Julian Stallabrass (eds)

Occupational Hazard is the first book to explore crticially the British art scene of the 1990's, in an attempt to get at the substance behind the hype. It brings together the views of artists critics and curators who have made their mark on this often fractious scene. Their views are diverse, and these writers air their differences without pulling any punches. The book also contains many rarely-seen images drawn from aritst-led organisations, includjing Beaconsfield, Locus+ and Transmission. The result is essential to all those interested in contemporary culture, as a document and an analysis of the many and varied strands of new British art.
