Summary
"How to imagine not only a new art or architecture but a new self or subject equal to them? In Prosthetic Gods Hal Foster explores this question through the works and writings of such key modernists as Gauguin and Picasso, F.T. Marinetti and Wyndham Lewis, Adolf Loos and Max Ernst. These diverse figures were all fascinated by fictions of origin, either primordial and tribal or futuristic and technological. In this way, Foster argues, two forms came to dominate modernist art above all others: the primitive and the machine."--Jacket
