Three Reflections on Contemporary Art History is the first in a series of publications edited and published by Discipline, the annually published contemporary art journal, based in Melbourne, Australia. This publication, edited by Nicholas Croggon and Helen Hughes, focuses Discipline’s interest in contemporary art onto the practice of art history itself, including essays by three of the discipline’s leading practitioners: Ian McLean, Amelia Barikin, and Terry Smith. In their essays, McLean, Barikin and Smith reflect on the stakes of a properly contemporary art history: its semantic precursors and philosophical potential, its link to the undead and, ultimately, its necessity.
