Identifier: CC-24819-25272
Scope and Contents This issue includes a Glyn Pursglove's essay, "An Introduction to Concrete Poetry." He states "The phrase 'Concrete Poetry' is bandied about a great deal in a way which seems to suggest that all those to whom it is applied are part of a conscious, united movement, and that they are artists whose work is dictated by a set of common and explicit principles. As anyone with any understanding of artistic 'movements' will readily imagine, this is a superficial and misleading idea. Certainly there have been plenty of explicit statements by some of the poets involved but these have, naturally, attracted as many opponents as supporters. One of the most important of such statements was 'POSITION 1 of International (Movement) for Spatial Poetries" organised by, among others, Pierre Gamier. This was not quite a manifesto, in the sense of a document proclaiming plans for the future, but rather a formalisation of a situation. Gamier was fully conscious of the difficulties, and his closing words...

Artists Books and Papers/Autorske Knihy a Papiry / Kocman, J.H. ; Valoch J ; Sackner RK ; Sackner MA., 1997

Identifier: CC-30537-31966
Scope and Contents

This catalogue is a retrospective of Kocman's Artists' Books and Papers. Jiri Valoch contributed a critical essay that traced the interdisciplinary art movements of the 1970's, the European political and artistic community in which Kocman worked, and his studies in bookbinding and aesthetics. He describes Kocman's work as "a synthesis combining intellectual detachment informed by his conceptual experience with a remarkable sensibility and strong lyricism and with a continuous questioning of the nature of art." Several examples of Kocman's works are held by the Sackner Archive. For example, the catalogue depicts a reproduction of Poe's "The Raven," one of Kocman's paper re-making books that is held by the Sackner Archive. The catalogue lists "The Metamorphosis" by Kafka (1980) and Fragment of Videvdat and Other Fragments (1988), as well as several editioned books held by the Sackner Archive. -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.

Identifier: CC-54846-990276
Scope and Contents This book documents a short but intense artistic experiment that took place in Yugoslavia fifty years ago but has been influential far beyond that time and place: the "little-known story" of the advent of computers in art. It was through the activities of the New Tendencies movement, begun in Zagreb in 1961, and its supporting institution the Galerija suvremene umjetnosti that the "thinking machine" was adopted as an artistic tool and medium. Pursuing the idea of "art as visual research," the New Tendencies movement proceeded along a path that led from Concrete and Constructivist art, Op art, and Kinetic art to computer-generated graphics, film, and sculpture. With their exhibitions and conferences and the 1968 launch of the multilingual, groundbreaking magazine Bit International, the New Tendencies transformed Zagreb"”already one of the most vibrant artistic centers in Yugoslavia"”into an international meeting place where artists, engineers, and scientists from both...
