Art and the Future : A History / Prophecy of the Collaboration Between Science, Technology and Art

[Third Printing]

Douglas Davis


"Acclaimed by critics and reviewers, Art and the Future is the definitive analysis of a radical trend in twentieth-century art - away from the studio toward an openness to currents of thought and activity in the outside world and a full-blooded collaboration with science and technology... Dozens of movements, manifestoes and works are defined and placed in critical context - Dada, Constructivism, Futurism, Light-Kinetic Sculpture, the Industrial Esthetic, Happenings, Minimal Art, Multiple Art, Technological (or 'Total') Theater, Environmental System Art, Mixed Media, Video Art, Computer Art and Conceptual Art. Firsthand information is provided on such creators as Robert Rauschenberg, Jean Tinguely, Takis, the ZERO and GRAV groups, Nam June Paik, Joseph Beuys, Robert Irwin and James Turrell [as well as many other artists]." - from back cover of book. In retrospect this book is amazingly quaint in its vision of the future, but valuable nevertheless.
