by [Art Catalog] Hulten, K.G. Pontus.

Publisher Information:
Museum of Modern Art, New York: 1968.

A flawless copy in serigraphed stainless steel covers designed by Anders Osterlin complete with the rare original box.. This Retrospective Exhibition Monograph is an exploration of artists' changing attitudes toward technology as demonstrated in their works, The title of the show relates to the fact that technology today is undergoing a critical transition. "We are surrounded by the outward manifestations of the culmination of the mechanical age.. Yet, at the same time, the mechanical machine - which can most easily be defined as an imitation of our muscles - is losing its dominating position among the tools of mankind; while electronic and chemical devices - which imitate the processes of the brain and the nervous system - are becoming increasingly important. Works by Max Ernst, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Fernand Leger, Ettore Bugatti, Alexander Calder, Rene Magritte, Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, Claes Oldenburg, Giorgio de Chirico, Andreas Feininger, Alberto Giacometti, George Grosz, Paul Klee, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Kurt Schwitters and others are featured.
