We recorded the launch of his wonderful New Tendencies – Art at the Threshold of the Information Revolution (1961-1978), published in June 2016, at MIT Press. The book was based on his doctoral thesis (PhD Arts and Computational Technologies) at Goldsmiths in 2012, a case study of the international movement New Tendencies. The theses passed without any corrections such was the stature of the work.

We hope to have a memorial event on the anniversary of the book’s publication and the London launch of Art at the Threshold of the Information Revolution, October 6th 2017. MIT PRESS BOOK 

Armin was a great theorist, curator, writer, a radical visionary and also a friend. To hear him speak so eloquently and passionately about the extraordinary research that informed his work, was a great priviledge and not to be forgotten.

 

We will miss him greatly.
