1. Howard Slater: The
Spoiled Ideas of Lost Situations
Some Notes on Political Conceptual Art. Infopool, London, July 2000
In this text, Slater traces key aspects of the conceptual art of the 1960s
and 70s and relates them to the strategies of digital artists of the late
1990s. He argues convincingly that contemporary art practices can be significantly
strengthened by a strong historical awareness to conceptual (rather than
purely technical) definitions of art.
