About the book:
Transmission Arts: Artists & Airwaves
Grounded in an art-historical context that celebrates the avant-garde, a genealogy of contemporary transmission-based projects includes Futurism, Hörspiel and radio theatre, post-war electronic music and composition, Fluxus and Happenings, early video collective projects, and telecommunications art. The works cited in this ground-breaking look at a new art genre are both historical projects conceived within this lineage, as well as contemporary works informed by important movements in art history. Communications technology and activism working together to ensure public and artistic access to the transmission spectrum provide the foundation from which the transmission art genre emerges. Celebrate this publication with artists and authors on July 23 in Hudson, NY at The Spotty Dog, and/or on October 18 at Issue Project Room in Brooklyn.
