The 1950's gave rise to the neo avant-garde movement. Picking up where the historic avant-garde movement had left off, this new movement explored innovative artistic techniques and materials, consciously influenced by international technological advances. These artists created a collective language which heavily influenced generations to follow, developing a quasi tribal strategy. Each art tribe is united by a common identity or social-political issue, without destroying the individual expression of the artist. Aware, or sometimes unaware, of these "tribal" affiliations, the belonging to a group gives added value to the artists' work and message. The exhibitions collected in this unique catalog are the first to represent a wide view of historic and contemporary works of art, events and performances, creating a concise map of their creativity. The groups or "tribes" found in this unprecedented volume never lost track of their drive or sense of artistic individuality. The catalog is divided according to art tribe, which include: Lettrismo, situazionismo, Gutai, Fluxus and Events, Happening, Mono-ha, Factory, Azionismo, Techne tribu, Tribal chiefs without tribes. The end of the volume has a section devoted to video art, not tied to a particular tribe, and a section dedicated to historic tribes. The art exhibit was produced by the famous Italian art critic Achille Bonito Oliva who engaged up and coming French, German, Italian, and Japanese art cutators to assemble this unique collection of creativity. Illustrated with over 400 color and black and white photographs of art work, this neo avant-garde compilation of masterpieces is a must for art collectors, dealers, students and modern art aficionados.
