Re: <nettime> History of Computer Art, chap. V

Have to agree completely, it gets very boring seeing histories that are only about the US and Europe or so called global histories/exhibitions that cover only the US, Europe and a few token Chinese artists.

In 2011 an excellent book "Synthetics" was released written by Stephen Jones and published by MIT Press on the history of computer and electronic art in Australia from 1956-1975. https://mitpress.mit.edu/books/synthetics THis is yet more proof of the falsity, or at least inadequacy, of the current approach.
