Neo-Avantgarde and Culture Industry: Essays on European and American Art from 1955 to 1975, Buchloh, Benjamin H. D.
4 Buchloh, Benjamin H. D.
Neo-Avantgarde and Culture Industry: Essays on European and American Art from 1955 to 1975
Cambridge, MA MIT Press; An October Book 2003 0262523477 / 9780262523479 Paperback Fine 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
xxxiii, 592 pp., illus., bib. notes, index; 23 cm. Tight, clean copy. In the tradition of the Frankfurt School (i.e., highbrow "Mandarin" Marxism a la Adorno). Stimulating reading, highly recommended. "Some critics view the postwar avant-garde as the empty recycling of forms and strategies from the first two decades of the twentieth century. Others view it, more positively, as a new articulation of the specific conditions of cultural production in the postwar period. Benjamin Buchloh, one of the most insightful art critics and theoreticians of recent decades, argues for a dialectical approach to these positions. This collection contains eighteen essays written by Buchloh over the last twenty years. Each looks at a single artist within the framework of specific theoretical and historical questions. The art movements covered include Nouveau Réalisme in France (Arman, Yves Klein, Jacques de la Villeglé - art in postwar Germany (Joseph Beuys, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter), American Fluxus and pop art (Robert Watts and Andy Warhol), minimalism and postminimal art (Michael Asher and Richard Serra), and European and American conceptual art (Daniel Buren, Dan Graham). Buchloh addresses some artists in terms of their oppositional approaches to language and painting, for example, Nancy Spero and Lawrence Weiner. About others, he asks more general questions concerning the development of models of institutional critique (Hans Haacke) and the theorization of the museum (Marcel Broodthaers); or he addresses the formation of historical memory in postconceptual art (James Coleman). One of the book's strengths is its systematic, interconnected account of the key issues of American and European artistic practice during two decades of postwar art. Another is Buchlohs method, which integrates formalist and socio-historical approaches specific to each subject. / Benjamin H. D. Buchloh is Professor of Art History at Barnard College/Columbia University." - Publisher.

At a Distance: Precursors to Art and Activism on the Internet, Chandler, Annmarie, and Neumark, Norie (Joint Editors)
9 Chandler, Annmarie, and Neumark, Norie (Joint Editors)
At a Distance: Precursors to Art and Activism on the Internet
Cambridge, MA MIT Press; Leonardo 2005 0262033283 / 9780262033282 1st Hardcover Very Good Fine 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
Cloth, gilt, xiv, 486 pp., illus., bib. notes, index; 24 cm. Near fine. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Remainder mark. Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. "Networked collaborations of artists did not begin on the Internet. In this multidisciplinary look at the practice of art that takes place across a distance -- geographical, temporal, or emotional -- theorists and practitioners examine the ways that art, activism, and media fundamentally reconfigured each other in experimental networked projects of the 1970s and 1980s. By providing a context for this work -- showing that it was shaped by varying mixes of social relations, cultural strategies, and political and aesthetic concerns -- At a Distance effectively refutes the widely accepted idea that networked art is technologically determined. Doing so, it provides the historical grounding needed for a more complete understanding of today's practices of Internet art and activism and suggests the possibilities inherent in networked practice. At a Distance traces the history and theory of such experimental art projects as Mail Art, sound and radio art, telematic art, assemblings, and Fluxus. Although the projects differed, a conceptual questioning of the 'art object,' combined with a political undermining of dominant art institutional practices, animated most distance art. After a section that sets this work in historical and critical perspective, the book presents artists and others involved in this art 're-viewing' their work -- including experiments in 'mini-FM,' telerobotics, networked psychoanalysis, and interactive book construction. Finally, the book recasts the history of networks from the perspectives of politics, aesthetics, economics, and cross-cultural analysis. / Annmarie Chandler is Director of Emerging Field in New Media and Digital Culture at University of Technology, Sydney, Australia. Norie Neumark is Associate Professor of Media Arts and Production at University of Technology, Sydney, Australia." - Publisher.

The New Frontier: Art and Television, 1960-65
Austin, TX Austin Museum of Art 2000 0967095220 / 9780967095226 1st Paperback Good Exhibition Catalogue 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 
99 pp., illus. (some col.), bib. notes; 30 cm. Exhibition held September 1 to November 26, 2000 and organized by the Austin Museum of Art. Withdrawn from library collection, with usual markings, otherwise very good. No writing in text. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. "Television emerged as the dominant mass medium in the United States during the era that President John F. Kennedy termed the New Frontier. Although television would soon be decried as 'a vast wasteland,' during this era artists began to engage with the medium in a sustained manner for the first time--and not just as an object to be pictured, but as a system that demanded a renegotiation of the relationship between the realms of art and life. The New Frontier is the catalogue of the first exhibition to examine the impact of television on the visual arts in the United States at a crucial period in the development of both. With a lively selection of nearly seventy-five paintings, sculptures, installations, films, videos, photographs, and documents from the United States and Europe, it explores how twenty artists, including Wallace Berman, Bruce Conner, Lee Friedlander, Dennis Hopper, Edward Kienholz, Yoko Ono, Nam June Paik, Robert Rauschenberg, Wolf Vostell, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, and Garry Winogrand, responded to the increased prominence of television in daily life during the early 1960s. Working in modes and styles as varied as collage and assemblage, Pop Art, Color Field Painting, Fluxus, Performance Art, and documentary photography, these artists engaged with the perceptual, technological, and social changes catalyzed in part by the emergence of television as the dominant mass medium." - Publisher. CONTENTS: Foreword, by Elizabeth Ferrer; Pop people, by John Alan Farmer; sound bites & spin doctors, by Naomi Sawelson-Gorse; Artists' biographies and bibliographies, compiled by Erica Shamaly.
