FOUNDATIONS

ByPaolo CirioLauren van Haaften-Schick

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Foundations reflects on the aesthetics and history of conceptual art concerning social complexity. Jack Burnham’s seminal defining of “systems aesthetics” in 1968, followed by the exhibitions Software at the Jewish Museum and Information at MoMA in New York in 1970, mark a turn in art addressing social and technological systems. Foundations focuses on the ontologies of conceptual art examining social fields, rather than solely the making of images, forms, or gestures driven by ideas. Informed by systems, cybernetics, and communication theories, this project reckons with today’s complexity in the age of algorithms, big data, and the Internet. This study and timelines by Paolo Cirio research on the genesis of the growing intersections among the domains of art, economics, politics, law, sociology, media, and technology.
