Art and Electronic Media by Edward Shanken is the freshest title in the Themes and Movements series published by Phaidon Press. This highly anticipated book demonstrates the formidable history of artistic uses of electronic media, a history that parallels the growing pervasiveness of technology in all facets of life. Over 200 artists and institutions from more than 30 countries are represented. The centrality of artists as theorists and critics is reﬂected in the focus on artists’ writings. The goal is to enable the rich genealogy of art and electronic media to be understood and seen – literally and ﬁguratively – as central to the histories of art and visual culture.
