"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
PREVIEW: Bruce Nauman in Season 1 of "Art in the Twenty-First Century" (2001)
Featured in this video
Bruce Nauman finds inspiration in the activities, speech, and materials of everyday life. Working in the diverse mediums of sculpture, video, film, printmaking, performance, and installation, Nauman concentrates less on the development of a characteristic style and more on the way in which a process or activity can transform or become a work of art.
Bruce Nauman is featured in the Season 1 episode "Identity" of the Art21 series "Art in the Twenty-First Century".
