- This book is the first of a series in which Willem Elias focuses on Belgian art movements that have emerged since 1945. Containing numerous images, the book highlights the significance of Belgian art since 1945 within an international context.

- Elias' approach is marked by its diversity: philosophical, art historical, art critical and technical aspects ore discussed. His opproach thereby mirrors the American theory (DBAE) of art education, which assumes that art is best understood when viewed from a variety of angles and disciplines. This book is intended for all those interested in contemporary art. It will be of particular interest to specialists wishing to refresh their memory, educational staff intent on communicating the rules of art and art students.
