The art of cross-linked thinking consists in facilitating dealing with complexity and admitting new insights. This approach, prevailing in all realms of knowledge, determines also the artistic praxis of Fluxus initiator George Maciunas.
This book shows some hundred diagrams and maps related to history from antiquity to postmodernism; they serve to visualize artistic, political, and economic correlations. If it were up to Maciunas, there wouldn't be any real concept of the past without percepts. With his maps, diagrams, and tables, a big part of which is published for the first time, he tries to draw a picture of history in a different way. The result seems fascinating both on a scientific and artistic level. It opens insights into eye-opening correlations between dates and facts as well as makes appear completely novel forms of knowledge transfer.

Book Description:

History and art history from antiquity to postmodernism in an overview

From the Back Cover:

The art of networked thinking consists in making complexity easier to handle and creating scope for new ideas. The approach, which is now applied in all spheres of knowledge, is one which also defines artistic practice. The subject of this book is some two dozen atlases, charts, and diagrams of Russian history and the history of art from antiquity to postmodernism that were designed between 1953 and 1973 by Fluxus initiator George Maciunas. Without such visualization of the past, so Maciunas believed, there could be no real understanding of how art and politics have evolved. His maps, charts, and diagrams, more than half of which are published for the first time here in this second edition, attempt in various ways to draw a picture of history made up of dates and facts, and lines and arrows. The result is fascinating, for both science and art.
