Textos curatoriais na virada 1960/1970: meio-ambiente informacional

Ruy Cézar Campos Figueiredo

Resumo


Em meio a pandemia de 2020, a experiência expositiva mediada por computadores em rede atingiu um curioso pico de relação com teorias e sistemas de informação, sendo sadio o gesto reflexivo de observar aspectos precedentes das relações entre arte e pensamento gestado em ambiente informacional. O desdobramento de novas teorias e tecnologias sobre informação durante e após a Segunda Guerra Mundial foi um gatilho do que culminou com o estabelecimento e desenvolvimento da cibernética, das linguagens de programação e dos primeiros experimentos com redes de computadores. O artigo discute textos curatoriais de exposições que envolvem práticas conceituais com tecnologias de informação na virada de década 1960/1970.

Abstract
The exhibitional experience mediated by network computers hit, amid the COVID-19 pandemics, a singular peak. It is healthy the reflexive gesture of observing preceding aspects of relations between art and thinking gestated in Information and Communication Technologies environments. The unfoldment of new theories and technologies about information during and after the Second World War was a  trigger to what culminated in the establishment and development of cybernetics, programming languages and the first experiments with computer networks. The appearance of conceptual practices in arts is intrinsically tied to the modes of relating with information and its circulation. The article here, therefore, turns to situate and discuss curatorial texts of exhibitions relating conceptual practices with information technologies along the 1960/1970’s turn.
