The Holographic Universe by Suzanne Treister


A category which reconsiders and recontextualises the whole of art history and art production in all forms and at all levels of professionalism; from cave painting through the Renaissance, to modernism and contemporary art, including so called primitive, outsider and psychedelic art; forgetting everything ever written down through the ages by academics, art critics, art historians and the artists themselves; looking beyond these constructions to what all artists may have always unwittingly been attempting to depict, to greater or lesser success, from within the prevailing mindsets of their own space and time…the Holographic Universe.
