Final words

[…] “the Phantasmagoria enacts certain contradictions of art and representation in the modern (and indeed the post-modern) era. The nature of perception, the material bases of art works, the role of illusion, the stimulation of the senses, the convergence of realism and fantasy — these issues so clearly posed by the Phantasmagoria not only represent essential questions of modern epistemology, but also questions that artists and art works ask with increasing frequency as we move into the twentyfirst century.”
