In her e-book, Lindsay Caplan explores how in postwar Italy, a group of visionary artists— Bruno Munari among the them — made use of emergent pc systems as both equally applications of artistic generation and a means to reconceptualize the dynamic interrelation among personal flexibility and collectivity. Arte Programmata traces the multifaceted procedures of these groundbreaking artists and their conviction that technological innovation could present the circumstances for a liberated social lifestyle.
