An online book by Graham Coulter-Smith
Deconstructing Installation Art focuses on contemporary installation art which came into prominence as a major international movement in the 1990s and still holds sway into the early years of the new millennium. The text provides a critical analysis that compares and contrasts 'deconstructive' strategies in contemporary fine art installation with similar directions in new media art.
