NEW FROM THE LEONARDO BOOK SERIES: Machine Art in the Twentieth Century

“Machine art” is neither a movement nor a genre, but encompasses diverse ways in which artists engage with technical systems. In this new offering from the Leonardo Book Series, Andreas Broeckmann examines a variety of 20th- and early 21st-century artworks that articulate people’s relationships with machines. In the course of his investigation, Broeckmann traces historical lineages that connect art of different periods, looking for continuities that link works from the end of the century to developments in the 1950s and 1960s and to works by avant-garde artists in the 1910s and 1920s. An art historical perspective, he argues, might change our views of recent works that seem to be driven by new media technologies but that in fact continue a century-old artistic exploration.
