Vertigo by Germano Celant

Book Description

This title presents the relation between art and media from the earliest incursions of technology to large multimedia installations. The Twentieth century marked the end of arts specificity. Sculpture and painting began to admit contamination from other languages architecture, photography, cinema, designing a free-ranging exploration of the most varied techniques and media. Art was swept up in a new sense of euphoria that opened the artists work to a vertiginous onrush of new expressive opportunities."Vertigo" seeks to document the trans-media excursions and incursions driven by the advent of new technologies - radio, television, telephones, gramophones, cinema, and theatre. It presents a grand panorama of images and thoughts, books and manifestos, films and photographs, disks and videos produced by the great names in art both past and contemporary, from Balla, Martinetti, Schwitters, Duchamp, Warhol and Beuys to Bruce Nauman, Anselm Kiefer, Nam June Paik and Laurie Anderson. It offers us an aesthetic realm unlimited by space, time or the medium.
