Words to be looked At: Language in 1960's Art Liz Kotz, MIT 2007


Some texts that explore text and language
Concrete poetry
The starting point has to be the Ruth and Marvin Sackner Archive
http://ww2.rediscov.com/sacknerarchives/Welcome.aspx
and as I have already said
http://www.ubu.com/
you can also start to look at individuals
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filippo_Tommaso_Marinetti
http://www.artchive.com/artchive/S/schwitters.html
http://www.colinsackett.co.uk/
Experimental novels
Mainstream starting points can be found here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Experimental_literature
starting points for me might be Calvino – invisible cities
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italo_Calvino
B.S. Johnson – house mother normal
http://www.bsjohnson.info/
text and book and art – Fiona Banner - http://www.fionabanner.com/
The Nam is in Chelsea collection
other stating points
hypertext – you could start with just texts – poetry and fiction – moving onto http://www.epimone.net/pieces/timetrain/index.html
