9780262525756: Networks (Whitechapel: Documents of Contemporary Art)

Considering art at the center of network theory, from the rise of the electronic media age in the 1960s to the present.

The dawn of the electronic media age in the 1960s began a cultural shift from the modernist grid and its determination of projection and representation to the fluid structures and circuits of the network, presenting art with new challenges and possibilities. This anthology considers art at the center of network theory, from the 1960s to the present.

Artists have used the "space of flows" as a basis for creating utopian scenarios, absurd yet functional propositions or holistic planetary visions. Others have explored the economies of reciprocity and the ethics of generosity, in works that address changed conditions of codependence and new sites of social negotiation. The "infra-power" of the network has been a departure point for self-organized counterculture and the creation of new types of agency. And a "poetics of connectivity" runs through a diverse range of work that addresses the social and material complexity of networks through physical structures and ambient installation, the mapping of the Internet, or the development of robots and software that take on the functions of artist or curator.

Artists surveyed include
Joseph Beuys, Ursula Biemann, Heath Bunting, Critical Art Ensemble, Fernand Deligny, Peter Fend, Gego, Jobim Jochimsen, Koncern, Christine Kozlov, Pia Lindman, Mark Lombardi, Diana McCarty, Marta Minujín, Aleksandra Mir, Tanja Ostojic, Ola Pehrson, Walid Raad, Artüras Raila, Hito Steyerl, Tomaso Tozzi, Suzanne Treister, Ultra Red, Wolf Vostell, Stephen Willats

Writers include
Jane Bennett, Hakim Bey, Luc Boltanski, Manuel Castells, Ève Chiapello, Guy Debord, Umberto Eco, Okwui Enwezor, Michael Hardt, Bruno Latour, Marshall McLuhan, Marcel Mauss, Reza Negarestani, Antonio Negri, Sadie Plant, Lane Relyea, Craig Saper, Saskia Sassen, Pit Schultz, Steven Shaviro, Tiziana Terranova, Paolo Virno

Lars Bang Larsen is an art historian and international curator based in Barcelona and Copenhagen. His books include The Model: Palle Nielsen's A Model for a Qualitative Society and, with Søren Andreasen, The Critical Mass of Mediation.

Review:

Lars Bang Larsen has assembled a vital selection of texts that map the various conceptual genealogies of the network from the perspective of our digital present. The collection features a wide range of artistic and theoretical positions, ranging from the well established to the still emergent. As such, Networks enables the reader to traverse a dynamic intellectual landscape, connecting diverse fields of thought.

(Luke Skrebowski, University Lecturer in History of Art, University of Cambridge)
