In My Computer – Miltos Manetas

In occasione di Italians Do It Better e del Padiglione Internet 2011, il LINK Center for the Arts of the Information Age è lieto di annunciare la pubblicazione di In My Computer, una raccolta di testi dell’artista Miltos Manetas.
Il libro è una raccolta di saggi, interviste, brevi racconti, parabole e email del suo autore. Alcuni di questi testi, scritti tra il 1997e il 2011, sono ormai ampiamente noti; molti altri sono inediti, ed escono per la prima volta dal suo computer. Tutti contribuiscono a delineare il ritratto di una personalità che ha avuto una notevole influenza sulle generazioni più giovani, grazie al suo ampio corpo di lavori – che comprende dipinti, video, installazioni, stampe, performance e, non da ultimo, siti Web – ma anche ai suoi scritti.
Il volume di Manetas inaugura una nuova collana di scritti d’artista: una serie di “quaderni” che adotteranno lo stesso approccio editoriale (raccolta di testi editi e inediti, note, scritture private) e lo stesso titolo (In My Computer).

On the occasion of Italians Do It Better and Padiglione Internet 2011, the LINK Center for the Arts of the Information Age is proud to announce the publication of In My Computer, a collection of texts by artist Miltos Manetas.
The book is a collection of essays, interviews, short tales, parables, e-mails and drafts by its author. Written between 1997 and 2011, some of these texts are widely known, many others are unpublished, and just came out of his computer. All of them contribute to portray a personality who had a strong influence on younger generations of artists, thanks to his impressive body of work – including paintings, videos, installations, prints, performances and, last but not least, websites – but also to his writings.
Manetas’ book is the first of a series of artists’ writings: “notebooks” sharing the same title (In My Computer) and the same concept, being collections of widely known and unpublished texts, spare fragments and private writings.
