Summary/Abstract: The author describes the work of Rosalind Krauss as a process of rewriting the history of modernism from the perspective of structuralism, post-structuralism, and psychoanalysis. The present text attempts a critical analysis of Krauss’ research approach and the strategies she developed, i.e. the negation of Clement Greenberg’s concept of modernism and the Cartesian non-corporeality of seeing, and the deconstruction of the great narratives of modernism (which she calls myths). The scholar makes a significant adjustment to the meaning of “medium” as a term – instead of a “material substance” that supports an image, she suggests “technical substance.” In conclusion, the author ponders the results of Krauss’ query: “Who are we?”
