Seventies versus eighties
This book highlights the aesthetic break between the 70s and 80s, examining the dominant attitudes of the two periods, each with its own interesting aesthetic. By focusing on some of the radical furniture designs, glass, pottery and fabrics, the shapes of which are typical of the two decades, a definition of the aesthetics of each period is attempted.It becomes clear that around the year 1980, a paradigmatic change took place on a broad front, a re-evaluation that emphasized multiplicity instead of unity, image instead of function, witty or even aggressive messages instead of good-natured self-reference. In short, something happened in 1980 which can be read as the definitive end of Modernism and the final arrival of Post-Modernism. Text in English and German.
