Six years: the dematerialization of the art object from 1966 to 1972

"Lippard was a primary critic and theorist of Conceptual art; this book, however, provides not commentary but, instead, primary documentation. It takes the form of an annotated, thematic timeline: the chapters list books (including exhibition catalogs) published each year, followed by articles, statements, activities, and works arranged by month. Photographs illustrate selected works. The annotations are, for the most part, as documentary as possible (transcripts, excerpts of artists' statements, etc.). Lippard's editorial hand is most visible in her inclusions and exclusions; less so in her only occasional textual insertions. As such, the book performs as Lippard had envisioned: 'to expose the chaotic network of ideas in the air, in America and abroad, between 1966 and 1971' (5)."

City by Michael Heizer

"City, Michael Heizer's life–long project, is quite possibly the largest piece of contemporary art ever attempted. Because the artist is a very private individual, little is known about City, except that he has been working on it since 1972 (he claims 1970). Located in the remote desert of Nevada, City comprises five phases, each consisting of a number of structures referred to as complexes."

Telecommunication: Decentralized International Exchange

Jeffrey Shaw (ZKM 1995)
TelecommunicationBroadcasting and telecommunications are an integral aspect of the new media technologies, and permit media manifestations to address an international and mass audience. While telecommunication methods have till now only tentatively been used by media artists, the Institute for Image Media feels that this is an important area of future development; one that will lead to a decentralized international exchange of cultural action and information.Therefore the Institute for Image Media will focus its activity in this area on the following potentials:

1). two–way interactive transmission of audiovisual data, for instance, via the new ISDN telephone system, 2). an international communications network of persons and institutions involved with media technology issues, 3). the new notions of "telepresence" and "cyberspace" which will enable people to enter a virtual dataspace and meet and communicate with each other there. This evokes the possibility for artists to create immaterial artworks that manifest themselves solely within the international telecommunications waves.
When one considers the visions which accompanied the development of contemporary art over the last 30 years – the kinetic art of the 1950s, the "open artwork" of the 1960s (happenings, environment, performances, land art, etc.), the conceptual and social art forms of the 1970s – one finds that these visions have interesting and astonishing parallels in the technological developments of the 1990's. Interactivity creates a intimate relation between the artwork and the viewer, tele–communications permits extended social interactions, simulation gives direct form to conceptual proposi–tions. It seems to be only a short step from "inter–media art" to "multimedia technology". Of course we cannot predict whether if technology will bring about a fulfillment or finale of these utopian artistic movements. The Institute for Image Media intends to be a place, where artists can think and work in relation to this question.
