The provocative body : A discourse analytical study of the art criticism concerning the exhibitions Paul McCarthy Head Shop/Shop Head and the Nationalmuseum’s Lust & Last (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna studie är att utföra en kritisk diskursanalys av ett urval konstkritiska texter som behandlar utställningarna Paul McCarthy: Head Shop/Shop Head från 2006 och Nationalmuseums Lust & Last från 2011. Utställningarna exemplifierar det jag kallar för den provokativa konstens diskurs. Genom analyserna vill jag se hur ett urval kritiker mottagit utställningarna samt ge en bild av den provokativa konstens diskurs med dessa två utställningar som exempel.

Abstract [en]

The exhibitions, Paul McCarthy’s Head Shop/Shop Head shown in 2006 and the Nationalmuseum’s Lust & Last shown in 2011, are in centre of this essay. The aim of the essay is to perform a discourse analytical study of a selection of art critical texts concerning these two exhibitions. The exhibitions exemplify what I have chosen to call “The provocative discourse of art”. I want to examine how a selection of art critics received the exhibitions, and also to present a view of “the provocative discourse of art”.
