Craig Owens - From Work to Frame, or, Is There Life After "The Death of the Author"?

Preface by Hannes Loichinger

Craig Owens - Vom Werk zum Rahmen. Oder: Gibt es ein Leben nach "Der Tod des Autors"?

Vorwort Hannes Loichinger
"From Work to Frame" was first published in English and Swedish in 1987 in a catalog of the Moderna Museet in Stockholm for the exhibition "Implosion: A Postmodern Perspective" (October 24, 1987 to January 10, 1988). As S*I*G #12, the text is published in English and in its first German translation, alongside a preface by Hannes Loichinger, who is editor of this issue.


S*I*G is dedicated to the periodic presentation of singular essays. Manifest in printed form, it is light enough to not be inhibited by an institutional parent, while pitching a format for exchange of thought.

All essays are available in printed form in a limited edition. For subscriptions and inquiries contact: post(at)sig-verlag.net
