The dawn of the electronic media age in the 1960s began a cultural shift from the modernist grid and its determination of projection and representation to the fluid structures and circuits of the network, presenting art with new challenges and possibilities. This anthology considers art at the centre of network theory, from the 1960s to the present. Artists have used the 'space of flows' as a basis for creating utopian scenarios, absurd yet functional propositions or holistic planetary visions. Others have explored the economies of reciprocity and the ethics of generosity, in works that address changed conditions of codependence and new sites of social negotiation. The 'infra-power' of thenetwork has been a departure point for self-organized counterculture and the creation of new typesof agency. And a 'poetics of connectivity' runs through a diverse range of work thataddresses the social and material complexity of networks through physical structures and ambientinstallation, the mapping of the Internet, or the development of robots and software that take on the functions of artist or curator. Artists surveyedincludeJoseph Beuys, Ursula Biemann, Heath Bunting, Critical Art Ensemble, FernandDeligny, Peter Fend, Gego, Jobim Jochimsen, Koncern, Christine Kozlov, Pia Lindman, Mark Lombardi,Diana McCarty, Marta Minujín, Aleksandra Mir, Tanja Ostojic, Ola Pehrson, Walid Raad, Artras Raila,Hito Steyerl, Tomaso Tozzi, Suzanne Treister, Ultra Red, Wolf Vostell, StephenWillats Writers include Jane Bennett, Hakim Bey, Luc Boltanski,Manuel Castells, Ève Chiapello, Guy Debord, Umberto Eco, Okwui Enwezor, Michael Hardt, Bruno Latour,Marshall McLuhan, Marcel Mauss, Reza Negarestani, Antonio Negri, Sadie Plant, Lane Relyea, CraigSaper, Saskia Sassen, Pit Schultz, Steven Shaviro, Tiziana Terranova, Paolo Virno
