SCULPTURE UNLIMITED 2: MATERIALITY IN TIMES OF IMMATERIALITY. Ed. by Eva Grubinger and Jorg Heiser. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 146 pp. with 25 ills. (21 col.). 20 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783956791024 In English.
Publisher's description: Does so-called post-Internet art have a future? How does the Internet of Things relate to objects and things in art? How do current philosophical movements such as new materialism and object-oriented ontology affect our notion of the art object? While the first volume Sculpture Unlimited {149439} asked how the contemporary field of sculpture can be defined against its long history, the second volume looks at its present and future. Once again edited by Eva Grubinger and Jorg Heiser, with contributions by internationally reputed artists and scholars, this volume poses the following question: If we assume computers and algorithms increasingly control our lives, regulate social and communications traffic, and produce new materials and things, is space for artistic imagination and innovation increased or decreased? What is the place of art and sculpture if we don't want to resort to maintaining aesthetic traditions? Additional essays by Aleksandra Domanovic, Mark Fisher, Nathalie Heinich, Mark Leckey, Jean-Francois Lyotard and Bernard Blistene, Jussi Parikka, Christiane Sauer and Timotheus Vermeulen.
