A Sound Art Bookshelf

A Sound Art Bookshelf

Since Edgard Varèse defined music as “organized sound” in the first half of the twentieth century--paving the way for musique concrète and the experiments of John Cage--it has been possible to approach acoustic phenomena as one would any tangible material, that is, to arrange or distort sound without considerations of melody, harmony or the classical composition. The term “sound art” arose in the U.S. in the 1980s, to describe the work of a number of artists who had made purely sound-based art alongside other kinds of practices, and has since occupied an ambiguous interzone between the “cultures” of art and music. The artists/musicians below pursue a primarily sound-derived or sound-oriented art; some of them, such as Christian Marclay and Brandon LaBelle, are among the first generation of artists to work exclusively in this fertile ground.

Hito Steyerl: The City of Broken Windows

Edited with text by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev, Marianna Vecellio. Text by Griselda Pollock, Hito Steyerl, Anna Altman, Manuela Ammer, Julieta Aranda, Marius Babias, Camila Bechelany, Jochen Becker, Franco “Bifo” Berardi, Fred Camper, Lauren Cornell, T.J. Demos, Thomas Elsaesser, Harun Farocki, et al.

She has published extensively, with essays such as In Defense of the Poor Image” reaching instant classic” status and books such as The Wretched of the Screen and Duty Free Art cementing her place in art-world discourse. And yet Steyerl’s art has not received the monographic treatment, until now.

The City of Broken Windows, published to accompany a new work of the same name at Castello di Rivoli, documents Steyerl’s installation exploring the process of teaching artificial intelligence . . . .go to book page >>
