How do we write and think about poetry and visual art in the wake of postmodernism? Questions like this are central to poetry and art, especially when taught within an academic context. Another Future is a collection of critical essays on contemporary poetry, art, culture, and politics that investigates the current state of these fields by bringing together writings on the work of a number of poets and visual artists. Reading the social poetically and poetry socially, Gilbert illuminates poetic and artistic practices in the present and creates a new discourse for thinking beyond postmodernism. Both meticulous and comprehensive, Another Future makes an important contribution to the critical discussion of contemporary poetry and cultural aesthetics.Essays cover authors, artists, and topics such as the Barbie Liberation Organization, Anselm Berrigan, Brenda Coultas, documentary aesthetics, Benjamin Friedlander, globalization, Andreas Gursky, Renee Gladman, Kevin Killian, David LaChapelle, Harryette Mullen, Mark Nowak, Keith Piper, pirate radio, "post-black" art, Martha Rosler, Edward Sanders, Andrew Schelling, Allan Sekula, September 11th, Prageeta Sharma, Roberto Tejada, Lorenzo Thomas, Anne Waldman, and the Zapatistas.
