The Post-medium Condition is where there is nothing differentiating painting from Sculpture; the distinctness of either as separate mediums was over.
'A voyage on the North Sea': art in the age of the Post-medium Condition.
Krauss, Rosalind. 2000. "A voyage on the North Sea" : art in the age of the Post-medium Condition. London: Thames & Hudson.
Krauss defines Post-medium Condition through Marcel Broodthaer's art work as he creates a fake museum called “The Museum of Modern Art, Eagles Division”. The museum was filled with objects relating to eagles and he added text as an example of how media-specificity is sufficient for contemporary art. Krauss also discusses the end of art through another work by Broodthaer, a cover of studio International Journal of Modern Art as you can read the writing as Fine Art but also as fin arts - the end of art.
Krauss’s thoughts on Medium- Specificity change through her life as an art critic and Post-medium Condition took her back to her original thoughts on Medium- Specificity as the term is still relevant and useful when judging an art work whether it is successful or not. (Krauss.2000:249)
