The double risk of primitivism
McNamara, Andrew E. & Stephen, Ann (2013) The double risk of primitivism. [Textual Work]
This essay examines the possibilities for practices that appeal to the primitive in the contemporary cultural context. The idea of the primitive is driven by a desire to challenge the limitations of Western culture, while at the same time attracting the charge of promoting Eurocentrism. This essay investigates this double risk and how artists have sought to evade it, confound it, or accentuate it.
