Networked collaborations of artists did not begin on the Internet. In this multidisciplinary look at the practice of art that takes place across a distance – geographical, temporal, or emotional – theorists and practitioners examine the ways that art, activism, and media fundamentally reconfigured each other in experimental networked projects of the 1970s and 1980s. By providing a context for this work – showing that it was shaped by varying mixes of social relations, cultural strategies, and political and aesthetic concerns – ‘At a Distance’ effectively refutes the widely accepted idea that networked art is technologically determined. Doing so, it provides the historical grounding needed for a more complete understanding of today’s practices of Internet art and activism and suggests the possibilities inherent in networked practice. ‘At a Distance’ traces the history and theory of such experimental art projects as Mail Art, sound and radio art, telematic art, assemblings, and Fluxus. Although the projects differed, a conceptual questioning of the ‘art object’, combined with a political undermining of dominant art institutional practices, animated most distance art. Finally, the book recasts the history of networks from the perspectives of politics, aesthetics, economics, and cross-cultural analysis.
