ART AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY IN AMERICAN MODERNISM
Preview not available

Abstract

A distinction is drawn between European and American Modernism to demonstrate how the ideal of reconciling art and social responsibility in the European tradition of the avant-garde is incompatible with American values. The author challenges American schools of architecture to break with the belief in an avant-garde and pursue both art and social reality as contradictory but equally valid concerns in modem life.
