Peter Weibel: On the History and Aesthetics of the Digital Image, 1984

úryvok:
"The digital image which allows one to intervene in each section of the picture surface as freely as the artist can in the canvas to form each portion of the picture as one wishes does not just emancipate the art apparatus from its torturous and constricting mechanics but also liberates our thinking in images par excellence from its many constraints. Thus the digital image is the first real foreboding of the "liberated image" like the digital sound of "liberated sound" the program of which was set down at the turn of the century. The art of the twentieth century has undertaken the emancipation of the image in two phases. In the first half of the century with Futurism, Cubism, Cubofuturism, Suprematism, Dadaism, Surrealism, etc. In the second phase with Action Painting, Fluxus, Happening, Pop Art, Kinetism, Op-Art, Ambiente, Arte Povera, actions, performances, etc."

Peter Weibel claims "Futurism, Cubism, Cubofuturism, Suprematism, Dadaism, Surrealism, etc."
to be conceptual precursors of media art (Weibel 1984, screen 6). New art forms emerging after
WW2 such as "action painting, Fluxus, Happening, Pop Art, Kinetism, Op-Art, Ambiente, Arte
Povera, actions, performances, etc.," (ibid.) are enlisted to the cause of preparing the ground for the
'liberated' digital image.
Isabelle Graw (1998) complains that in the frequent comparisons between media art and Futurism,
Dada, Fluxus, Mail Art, etc. the 'similarities' are left without further explanations. Art forms as
distinct as Informel and the raster-technique in pop art all 'tacitly' share the characteristics of the
digital image, in Weibel's history, where everything is thrown together into the primordial soup of
the digital. Everything that has been relevant in art since 1910 is bundled into a narration which
culminates in media art.
