Vertigo : a century of multimedia art from futurism to the Web by Vertigo( Book )

14 editions published in 2008 in English and Italian and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The twentieth century was marked by the fall of all specific artistic disciplines. Painting and sculpture began to intertwine with other artistic languages - architecture and photography, cinema and design - through the unbridled use of all techniques and all media. Vertigo: A Century of Multimedia Art, from Futurism to the Web aims to document multimedia overlays created through the use of new technologies - radio and television, the telephone and gramophone, film and the computer - that have marked the artistic practices of the historic and contemporary avant-gardes, from futurism to constructivism, dada to surrealism, pop art to conceptual art. It features a long line-up of images and thoughts, books and manifestos, films and photographs, discs and videos produced by the major protagonist of art - both yesterday and today, from Balla to Marinetti, Schwitters to Duchamp, Warhol to Beuys, Nauman to Kiefer and Paik to Anderson - for an aesthetic view completely free of all spatial, temporal and media-based confines."--Jacket
