Avantgarde Männersache? Künstlerinnen im Japan der 50er und 60er Jahre des 20. Jahrhunderts. By Maren Godzik. Iudicium Verlag, München, 2006. 255 pages. 25.00, paper. Reviewed by Franziska Seraphim Boston College Japanese avant-garde art is in the air. If, until recently, avant-garde artists of the 1950s and 1960s had garnered little serious academic interest, they are now the subject of three new studies, each from a different perspective. The Getty Research Institute in Los Angeles produced an exhibition and accompanying catalogue of its own collection of postwar Japanese avant-garde art entitled Art, Anti-Art, Non-Art: Experimentations in the Public Sphere in Postwar Japan 19501970 (Getty Publications, 2007). The accomplished historian Thomas Havens turned his pen to the cultural politics of "the avant-garde rejection of modernism" in his latest book, Radicals and Realists in the Japanese Nonverbal Arts (University of Hawai`i Press, 2006).
