With over seven hundred color illustrations of works by all of the important light artists-a new standard work on the subject.
More than almost any other medium, electric light has revolutionized and democratized our world. Today we live in cities and gardens of light, and for almost a century, artists have been working with light bulbs, fluorescent and neon light, glowing LEDs, and powerful spotlights. This comprehensive publication offers a broad overview of the development of this genre, from the pioneers of light art in the 1920s and the immersing and interactive environments of ZERO, GRAV, Gruppo T, and Gruppo N, to the early light artists from Europe and North and South America. Outstanding contemporary productions—with their profound illuminated spheres, ironic cross-references, and fascinating plays of filigreed light—complete this glowing spectrum of explorations of artificial light.  You can download an index of light artists included! Artists  featured (selection):Vito Acconci, Martin Boyce, Björn Dahlem, Olafur Eliasson, Tracey Emin, Dan Flavin, Gerhard von Graevenitz, Zaha Hadid, Jenny Holzer, Mike Kelley, Brigitte Kowanz, Julio Le Parc, Benita Liebel, Mario Merz, László Moholy-Nagy, Bruce Nauman, Jorge Pardo, Tobias Rehberger, Anselm Reyle, Jason Rhoades,  Nicolas Schöffler, Keith Sonnier, Yves Tinguely, James Turrell, Cerith Wyn Evans, Chen Zhen Exhibition schedule: ZKM, Museum für Neue Kunst Karlsruhe, November 19, 2005–August  6, 2006>> The book is out of print, but still available via shop.zkm.dePETER WEIBEL (* 1944, Odessa) is an internationally known media and conceptual artist, curator, and art and media theoretician.
