Uncharted Space: The End of Narrative
In the twentieth century painters, playwrights, and novelists began to produce non-representational works that eschewed narrative and were entirely devoted to an achromatic colorscape. Uncharted Space: The End of Narrative overturns critical exegesis that interprets these works as negative or as the «end» of art by offering a new way to think about and to articulate works devoid of narrative and color. When understood from a different critical perspective, art and literature produced at the end of narrative challenge our traditional ways of interpreting all art production.
