>Dear all
>Sorry for my poor writing in English.
>I am a graduate student of science of art in Japan.
>I am considering of the transformation of avant-garde discourse in art.
>The artists so-called "historical avantgarde" after Peter Burger, for example,
>futurists, dadaists, surrealists, did they call themselves "avantgarde", or
>did the scholar give the name of avantgarde later?
>Also, did artists in 1960's such like fluxus artists or Kaplow feel
>themselves "avantgarde", in spite of the main critical discourse of "the
>end of avantgarde"
>in those days?
>Meanwhaile, how about the formalistic artists themselves? Certainly Greenberg
>called them "avantgarde" starategically.
>I would appreciate your assistance.
>Thank you.
>Kiyo Wataya in Nara, Japan
