First published in 1988, this book attempts to tackle the problem of how to write about art, culture, and the issues of postmodernism in a style appropriate to what is being claimed. The letters are written on art's behalf to a range of institutions and individuals, and have as their recurring concern the relation between art, culture and representation - both art as representation and how art is represented to, and for, the surrounding culture. They explore the context and viability of art through a range of themes, including writing, the aestheticisation of everyday life, style, design pleasure, fragmentation, hyphenation, technology, and the museum - drawing on materials from the visual arts, music, literature, post-structuralism, contemporary criticism, philosophy, and sociology.
